23 Mar Please The Palate Pick of the Week: Grilled Halloumi Salad at The Henry
Salads are a staple in my life. I make them for lunch. I order them when out for lunch or dinner, sometimes to start a meal and sometimes as the main course. What’s not to love about a big bowl of lettuce, vegetables and more. But, most salads are rather unmemorable. They taste good while you are eating it and then you forget all about it. That was until I had the grilled halloumi salad at The Henry in West Hollywood. Not only did I enjoy it while I ate it, I kept thinking about when I would be back for another one. So, I think that makes sense that the Grilled Halloumi Salad at The Henry is the Please The Palate pick of the week.
The bowl is filled with lettuce, cucumber, tomato, pickled peppers, cauliflower, dried olives and crunchy chickpeas. Tahini is smeared against one side of the bowl. The grilled halloumi is cut into bite size pieces and the salad is tossed with an oregano vinaigrette.
The salad satisfies in so many ways. There is nothing overly complicated or sophisticated about the salad. But, it is so full of flavor. It is filling but not heavy. The combination of the pickled peppers, dried olives and crunchy chickpeas add texture. For those who care, the salad is vegetarian and gluten free. And, it costs $15.
The grilled halloumi salad tastes so good that I am craving it as I write this. Guess I will have to head back to The Henry very soon!
