I have a slight halloumi obsession. It screams summer dinners to me and is exactly what I crave when I want something filling enough for dinner which can still leave me feeling light, fresh and summery. Just like my griddled halloumi with herby barley and roasted veg, this grilled halloumi salad is such a tasty weeknight dinner and really makes halloumi the star!

So there are so many fab ways to use this grilled halloumi salad. We made ours on the hob and had it as our dinner with a bit of crusty bread but you could definitely serve this as a side dish at a barbecue. Whip up the herby salsa ahead of time and keep it in the fridge until ready to use. Then once you’re ready to eat just throw your slices of halloumi on the barbecue and get them all crispy and grilled. Put the halloumi and salsa together on a platter along with some fresh tomatoes and a sprinkling of herbs and you’ve got an amazing side salad or something to please any veggies at your barbecue.

And then we found these gorgeous colourful tomatoes and they look so pretty! So this seemed like the perfect thing to make tomatoes the star.

    I’m glad you came over to the pretty tomato side of life! It is amazing how much more flavor fancy tomatoes have. πŸ™‚ And I agree about halloumi for summer dinners. I would totally have this salad with some bread for dinner.
