Grilled Halloumi with Spicy Tomato Salsa

We’re big fans of Halloumi over at TGH HQ, which is probably because it’s an ingredient which instantly stops any vegetarian feeling like they’re missing out! We’ve put together this slightly spicy salsa and grilled halloumi recipe as a side dish or light lunch, but by adding either courgettes or aubergines (simply chop and add to the pan at the same time as the tomatoes), you’ll have one mean vegetarian dinner!
