Winter Salad with Halloumi “Croutons”
Halloumi, a firm Greek cheese, softens but doesn't completely melt when heated. In this healthy recipe, halloumi is cubed, marinated and broiled, turning it into crouton-like bites to top this hearty vegetarian main-dish salad.
Tips: Semi-firm, brined halloumi cheese is great for cooking because it holds its shape when heated. It can be salty, though--some have up to 900 mg of sodium per ounce. Pick one with closer to 300 mg per ounce.
