Halloumi Salad with mushrooms and zucchini

Halloumi Salad with mushrooms and zucchini

When I think of Halloumi salad, it immediately reminds me of Israel. You can eat it in every coffee place around the country and I am always looking forward to it, when I am visiting Israel. It is somehow a taste of childhood for me! I remember how my parents often brought me to the coffee place with the best Halloumi salad in Tel Aviv. Well, you know, every childhood taste is very special. These days I decided, that it is a time to make one of my favorite salads at home. It was great and fast, the only thing was really missing is a special Israeli atmosphere, which makes this salad very special!

Halloumi Salad (for 2 portions):

  • Halloumi Cheese 70 gm.
  • 1 Zucchini
  • 3-4 champignons
  • Salat ‘corn’ 100 gm
  • 4-5 cherry tomatoes
  • 3-4 mini carrots (or 1 medium carrot)
  • olive oil
  • fennel
  • 0% fat yogurt

1. Prepare “corn” salat and cut cherry tomatoes into 2 or 4 parts (depending on their size)

2. Cut zucchini and carrots into rounds, fry on olive oil till it is completely ready.

3. Cut mushrooms into 4 parts, fry on olive oil till it is completely ready.

4. Cut Halloumi cheese into small squares, fry for 1 minute on a very hot pan (add a tiny bit of olive oil) till the cheese gets the nice color.

5. Mix all ingredients, add salt and pepper.

For Halloumi Salad dressing:

I use fennel and 0% fat yogurt, salt and pepper. Just cut fennel and mix it with yogurt, add a bit of salt and pepper. Dressing for homemade Halloumi salad is ready. Alternatively, for dressing you can just use olive oil and lemon juice. It is up to your taste!
