This easy halloumi salad is a great low carb vegetarian meal! I love the cold, crunchy vegetables mixed with the crispy halloumi!

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus 1 teaspoon divided
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon za’atar seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 6 oz halloumi cheese, sliced into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 heart romaine lettuce (about 3 cups chopped)
  • 1/2 cucumber, seeds removed, diced
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

  1. Whisk two tablespoons of olive oil with the vinegar, lemon juice, za’atar, salt, and garlic in a small bowl.
  2. In a non-stick skillet over medium heat, swirl the remaining teaspoon of olive oil.
