Halloumi Salad

Jump to Recipe

Is there anything better than Halloumi cheese? I am not sure, but it is up there! It’s a Greek cheese that is salty, mild, and kind of squeaky when you chew it! It is eaten warm, so it gets all melty and is soooo good! It’s a great vegetarian protein to add to salads or vegetarian dishes. I also LOVE it in tacos!

This salad has a good amount of protein for a vegetarian salad. The tart pomegranate arils balance the rich cheese. The crunchy chickpeas add great texture and the balsamic glaze puts it over the top! This is a great lunch salad and would be so pretty for a dinner party! Plus, it is super simple! If you don’t have chickpeas, you can add pistachios. I like to buy Biena crunchy chickpeas from the store already made. They have a bunch of flavors. You can also make them in your air fryer!
