Grilled Vegetable Salad

Grilled Vegetable Salad

Ingredients:
1 bunch Asparagus, cleaned
1 Red Onion, cut in rings
1 Red Bell Pepper, slice each side off
4 oz Halloumi Cheese χαλούμι
1-2 tsp Olive Oil
1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes, Sliced
1 Avocado, diced
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
1/2 tsp Honey
1-2 tsp Sesame Seeds

Directions:

  • Using a brush, lightly cover the grilling grates, Asparagus, Bell Pepper, Onion, and Halloumi.
  • Prepare the Grill or Broiler as directed by manufacturer–you want medium high heat.
  • Place the Asparagus, Bell Pepper, and Halloumi on the grates and cover with the Onions and sprinkle with the Salt and Pepper. I suggest using an oven-safe cooling rack and placing it on top of the grate. If you use the cooling rack, it is easier to pick everything up in the end.
  • Close and grill for 5-7 minutes or until the onions and Halloumi begin to get a nice golden brown on the outside.
  • Remove and combine with the rest of the Vegetables in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the Lemon Juice, Olive Oil, Honey, and Dijon Mustard.
  • Drizzle over the Vegetables, sprinkle with Sesame Seeds, and Toss.

Makes about 6-8 servings.

NOTES: This is an ideal summer salad–full of fresh ingredients, tons of grilled flavor, and yet light, sweet, and citrusy. You can substitute Zucchini or Broccoli or just add them to the lot. I do not recommend grilling the Tomatoes, as they tend to fall apart Halloumi is a Cypriot/Middle Eastern cheese that is very dense, mildly salty, and can be GRILLED! It is a great addition to this dish, and complements the Asparagus and Sesame Seeds amazingly.
