Grilled Asparagus, Tomato, and Halloumi Salad with Arugula and Spinach

Grilled Asparagus, Tomato, and Halloumi Salad with Arugula and Spinach

I loved everything about this salad. The tender and juicy grilled asparagus and tomatoes, crisp halloumi, and a mix of arugula and spinach tossed with a tangy vinaigrette. It was hearty, healthy, and so delicious. I made this salad for lunch yesterday and found myself slowing down so I could really enjoy every bite. I have a feeling everyone will like this salad in my family, so it’s on the menu for next week.

How to Make a Grilled Asparagus, Tomato, and Halloumi Salad with Arugula and Spinach

Combine the olive oil, seasoned rice vinegar, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Whisk until well combined; set aside to allow flavors to mingle. Side Note: I prefer my vinaigrette with a strong tangy flavor so I use equal amounts of oil/vinegar. Use less if you prefer.

Preheat your grill pan that has been coated in olive oil cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus, tomatoes, and halloumi. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Cook for 3-4 minutes then flip and continue cooking for a couple more minutes, or until the asparagus is fork-tender, the tomatoes are ready to burst, and the halloumi is golden and crisp.

Drizzle some whisked vinaigrette over the arugula/spinach mix, to taste. Toss to coat evenly. Place the asparagus spears, tomatoes, and halloumi on the salad and drizzle with a bit more vinaigrette, to taste. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
