Charred Corn & Halloumi Salad

Charred Corn & Halloumi Salad

This is as seasonal as it gets! Tomatoes are at their pick right now. And, so are sweet and juicy corns. What a better time to throw all these seasonal vegetables together to make a delicious salad! I added a little Middle Eastern flair to the salad by adding grilled halloumi. Halloumi is the only cheese you can grill, and once you grill it, it changes its texture and flavors completely, which goes so well with the rest of the salad. Make this super simple, but a super flavorful salad for your next party!
