4 servings


  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 3 teaspoons honey

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon dried basil

  • 4 cups baby spinach

  • 1 nectarine, pitted and sliced

  • ¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted

  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced red onion

  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced red bell pepper

  • 1 (8.8 ounce) package halloumi cheese, sliced into 1/2-inch strips


  1. Whisk vinegar, olive oil, honey, mustard, salt, pepper, and basil together in a medium bowl. Set vinaigrette aside.

  2. Toss 1/2 of the vinaigrette together with spinach, nectarine, almonds, red onion, and bell pepper in a large bowl.

  3. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add strips of halloumi and let cook until the undersides are golden brown and all liquid has been released and evaporates, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook until other side is golden brown, about 1 minute more.

  4. Plate servings of salad, top with warm halloumi slices, and serve with remaining vinaigrette.
