Try this twist on a traditional caprese salad and swap out the mozzarella for some halloumi. Dollop on your favourite pesto for a little extra something special. This recipe is great for gluten free, grain free, mental health, diabetes, and low sugar conditions or diets.


  1. 1

    In a small bowl, toss the sliced halloumi with za’atar and oil.

  2. 2

    Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the halloumi and grill on each side until browned, about three to four minutes per side. You can also grill this over medium-high heat for three to four minutes on the BBQ as well.

  3. 3

    Place the tomatoes on a large platter or plate. Dollop pesto over top of the tomatoes. Add the halloumi on top. Garnish with fresh basil and season with salt and pepper and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
