Get Set For Spring With The Hussar Grill’s Halloumi Salad

Halloumi Salad

Spring is in the air and the warming weather often calls for lighter meals. Look to The Hussar Grill’s Halloumi Salad, one of the restaurant’s delicious vegetarian menu options, for a quick and easy stand-alone fix. Alternatively, serve this salad as a tasty course as part of a lengthy weekend feast.

The crispy halloumi with a creamy, melty centre adds a rich and hearty counterpart to an assemblage of roasted vegetables and French-style sautéed green beans. We suggest trying it at your local Hussar Grill first to get the inside track for your home preparation.


150g Halloumi cheese, sliced into 4 pieces

1 tsp Butter

75g Blanched green beans

8 Cherry tomatoes, halved

120g Roasted vegetables, prepared in advance

1 Pinch salt & pepper

Crispy onions to taste

Balsamic reduction to taste


Sauté the green beans with tomatoes in a small amount of butter with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place the beans and tomatoes in your salad bowl. Top with the roasted vegetables. A few minutes before you’re ready to serve the salad, shallow fry the halloumi cheese until golden brown on either side. Then add the halloumi to the bowl. Sprinkle crispy onions and balsamic reduction over the dish. Serve immediately. Do not allow the halloumi cheese to stand for too long once cooked as it is best enjoyed warm.
