I am fascinated with croutons that are not bread-based. I love finding these perfectly sized crunchy or chewy bites as I make my way through a salad. Halloumi is a widely popular Cypriot cheese that is firm enough to withstand grilling and makes for a warm, delicious, golden "crouton." Just don't overcook it, or it will become hard and crispy.

Preheat the oven to 375°F. On a parchment-lined baking tray, place the cheese in a single layer. On a separate tray, place the tomatoes skin side down. Bake both trays for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is a light golden brown, turning the "croutons" occasionally to brown them evenly on all sides, and the tomatoes are slightly wilted. In a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Add the cheese and tomatoes and serve.

Serves 4
