Halloumi cheese is one of my all time favorite cheeses. I love the natural taste and flavor of sheep's milk which pairs perfectly with most things. You can eat this colorful salad alone or serve it with fresh pita bread.
1 package Halloumi Cheese, diced
2 garlic cloves, sliced
2 tomatoes, diced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup green Spanish olives
3 teaspoons zatar
1 teaspoon sumac
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
1 scallion, sliced
1. In a 9-inch skillet on medium heat add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add cheese, garlic and zatar. Cook until cheese is lightly golden.
2. In a medium sized bowl add pepper, cucumbers, tomatoes and olives. Pour cheese mixture into bowl. Mix well.
3. Sprinkle mint, scallions and sumac on top of salad. Drizzle with olive oil.
