This halloumi salad is made up of a few simple ingredients including kale, cannellini beans and cucumber and it’s drizzled with a tahini yoghurt dressing for a light and healthy lunch or dinner.
Kale and halloumi are two of my favourite ingredients. Especially when I’m trying to eat a little healthier, they’re both filling, satisfying and full of flavour and texture.
We have been having a crazy heatwave in London over the past month or so. I adore the heat and have been loving the warm weather but it got to a bit of a breaking point today where it felt super heavy and thankfully there was a big storm.
I love thunder storms so that was all good and straight afterwards it seemed to drop about 10°C which made everything seem much fresher.
Even still we’re looking at mid to high twenties temps for the indefinite future so we need salads and vegetables and healthy stuff stat.
This was one of my warm weather creations from the past few weeks. Minimal cooking is involved, just frying the halloumi, then everything else is tossed together and drizzled with dressing. Easy!
INGREDIENTS YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS HALLOUMI SALAD WITH KALE:

You can really mix up this salad and use whatever you have. I like cucumber for that fresh crunchiness but you could switch it for tomatoes or any other vegetable you like.
The cannellini beans could easily be switched for any other bean or even chickpeas if you prefer. I also sprinkle sunflower seeds on top but any other seed would work just as well so use your favourite!
So we’ve covered the salad and all your options in terms of ingredients but now let’s talk about that dressing.
Tahini is my new obsession in terms of salad dressings, it just adds the best nutty flavour and this version with Greek yoghurt has a little extra tang to it as well.
I made a maple tahini dressing for this sweet potato and quinoa salad as well which was just perfect with its nutty sweetness.
The dressing is so simple to make, just whisk everything together, and you should almost definitely make double because you’ll want to use it on everything.
I added a little curry powder and cumin to mine and I love that curry flavour with all the other ingredients, the curry and halloumi kind of reminds me of this cashew nut curry with halloumi which is one of my all time faves.
