Halloumi, Chickpea, and Tomato Salad with Mint


Halloumi is the hot new cheese! Well, really, it's ancient, not new--but it is best fried or grilled, so "hot" is fair, isn't it? This fresh salad combines halloumi with tomatoes, mint, and chickpeas, Mediterranean-style.

  • 1 (14 ounce) can chickpeas, drained

  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped

  • 3 medium green onions, sliced

  • 12 leaves fresh mint, chopped

  • 1 medium lemon, juiced

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 7 ounces halloumi cheese, sliced


  1. Stir chickpeas, tomatoes, green onions, mint, lemon juice, and olive oil in a salad bowl. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.

  2. Heat a dry nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add halloumi to the hot pan and cook, turning once, until deeply browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove to a cutting board and chop into 1/2-inch chunks.

  3. Stir halloumi into the salad and serve immediately.
