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

  • 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.

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

I love this recipe. Nectarines can be hard to cut when very ripe. Cube the fruit around the pit is a good strategy. I couldn't find Haloumi at my local market so I used Bread Cheese, which has a similar consistency and heats just as well on the grill. This salad has gorgeous colors with the green spinach, purple onions, red peppers and the red-orange of the nectarine. The dressing is light and tasty. If your nectarines are very soft and juicy, you could reduce the honey by half, this salad was plenty sweet. I did not add the almonds- didn't have any. I didn't miss the crunch since the peppers and onions added some of that texture. Serve with a grilled pork tenderloin or poultry for a wonderful early summer meal. Read More

We really enjoyed this salad. The dressing was very refreshing and we loved the combination of nectarines and spinach. I am new to cooking with haloumi and the detailed cooking directions in this recipe really helpful. I didn’t make any changes. Read More

The recipe in the magazine is slightly different than the one online. The salad was very good. I also added some fried Tofu to up the protein since I was making it for dinner. The honey mustard vinaigrette seemed a little strange on it. I might try a light poppy seed dressing on it the next time. I might also try experimenting with some different fruits, maybe some berries. Read More
