The combination of sweet berries, crunchy almonds and salty cheese in this spinach salad really can't be beaten. Pan-fried bites of the Greek cheese halloumi are a delicious stand-in for croutons. A simple shallot vinaigrette is made right in the same bowl as the salad, so this stunning summer salad is quick and easy to prep too. Source:, June 2019

  • Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add halloumi and cook, stirring, until browned on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Whisk the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, vinegar, shallot, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add spinach, blueberries, almonds and the halloumi; toss to coat.
