#HotSummerEats: Grilled Haloumi-Watermelon Salad #sponsor

Grilled haloumi with watermelon is one of my favorite summer combinations. If you're never had haloumi, it's a semi-hard, brined cheese from Cyprus. I love doing a quick grill on it. For this easy salad, I used the Roasted Tomato Vinaigrette from Out of the Weeds* as my dressing on the greens, then topped it with slices of watermelon and grilled haloumi.


  • salad greens
  • salad dressing (I used the Roasted Tomato Vinaigrette from Out of the Weeds*)
  • haloumi cheese, thickly sliced
  • watermelon, sliced
  • fresh parsley for garnish

Grill haloumi on a grill pan on the stove or on an actual grill. You don't need to grill it too long - just enough to warm it and get the grill marks.

While the cheese grills, toss greens with dressing and plate individually. Lay slices of watermelon on top of the greens. Top it all with the grilled haloumi. Garnish with fresh parsley.
