This dish is much more than just your everyday salad thanks to halloumi, a magical cheese. A staple throughout the Mediterranean, halloumi can be grilled, fried, baked, or broiled without melting. In this recipe, we broil the halloumi with a little olive oil which gives the cheese a crisp golden crust. Fattoush is a well-known Lebanese salad made with toasted pita bread. The combination of tender cheese, crunchy pita chips, and juicy fresh vegetables lifts this salad above any normal lunchtime fare.
