Keto Halloumi Salad with Cauliflower

This tasty and simple Keto Halloumi Salad with cauliflower is a simple and quick salad that is substantial enough to be a meal on its own.

I love halloumi cheese in a salad, especially when it is served warm like in this Keto Halloumi Salad. The cheese has a firm texture that is delicious when grilled, making this a great vegetarian keto option as well.

I like to serve my Keto Halloumi Salad with steamed cauliflower tossed in butter until just golden, but you could also oven bake the cauliflower.

I also toss the warm ingredients through baby spinach leaves to get some extra greens in. You could also use rocket/arugula or your other favourite salad leaves in this Keto Halloumi Salad.
