Ingredients

  • 4 cups bread, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. chili flakes
  • 8 oz. halloumi, chopped
  • 7 cups arugula, rinsed and dried
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 peaches, sliced
  • 1 pint of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven 450ºF.
  2. Place the chopped bread onto a baking sheet and toss with 2 Tbsp. of olive oil, 1 tsp. of salt and 1 tsp. of chili flakes.
  3. Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake until the bread has browned and is nice and crunchy, roughly 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  4. While the bread is toasting, heat a frying pan on medium heat. Add a drop of oil and fry the halloumi on each side until golden, approximately 2 – 3 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and let cool.
  5. In a large bowl, toss the arugula with 1 Tbsp. of olive oil. You want a nice even coating. Add more if needed.
  6. Add the sliced peaches, cherry tomatoes and shallots to the arugula and toss.
  7. Season the salad with lime juice, salt and pepper. Taste and add more seasoning if needed. Add the toasted bread and the fried halloumi to the salad. Plate and serve.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
