Leftover Tofu, Halloumi, and Tomato Salad

Recently I found myself with some leftover Baked Tofu, and this Leftover Tofu, Halloumi, and Tomato Salad was such a satisfying way to use leftover tofu that I thought it might be worth posting. Baking gives tofu a slightly chewy texture, making it perfect to use as a salad topper like this. I thought this was a quick and tasty salad for a summer lunch.

I couldn’t resist grilling a slice of Halloumi Cheese at the same time I browned the tofu and it made a nice flavor contrast with the tofu, but you could certainly use any kind of cheese here, or just make a salad with tomatoes and tofu if you’d rather skip the cheese. This salad used purchased tomatoes-on-the-vine from Costco, but later this summer when tomatoes are fresh from the garden, the salad would be even better.

  1. Tofu and cheese in the same salad sounds interesting. I’ve never heard of halloumi but I’ll have to try it.

  2. Oh Kalyn, I love Halloumi but I can’t find it in Vancouver. Your salad looks scrumptious.

  3. Oh lovely salad Kalyn. Haloumi has to be one of my favourite foods and with the grilled tofu. Yum.

  4. That halloumi salad looks really good.

  5. CC, me too, I don’t know why I didn’t cook tofu years ago. Oh well, I’m planning to make up for lost time. I first had grilled octopus last year in SF and fell in love with it!

    Tanna, you are always so sweet. I’m not sure this classified as a “recipe” but the combo of tofu and Halloumi with tomatoes was great on the salad. Basil is just starting to thrive here, but I do need to pick some.

  6. Kalyn when it’s this beautiful and tasty it’s perfect for blogging! With the basil in my back yard taking over I need all these ideas. Excellent.

  7. I am *digging* your foray into tofu!
    Lots of good ideas, and I really like this one.
    And… now I gotta find some octopus.

  8. Oh yum. I am salivating at the thought of this salad with octopus!

  9. I have a grill pan now so I’ve been eager to grill some halloumi. I bet octopus or calamari would be terrific in this salad as well!
