Simple Blistered Green Bean, Cherry Tomato & Fried Halloumi Salad: Green Beans and Halloumi Cheese Fried in Olive Oil, Served with Fresh Halved Cherry Tomatoes and Dill, Paired with a Sweet Balsamic Glaze

I like the idea that a “salad” doesn’t necessarily mean your base has to consist of leafy greens. In fact, I have seen menus at a lot of restaurants in recent years include salads made from other things like different vegetables and fruits. This salad inspiration stemmed from that idea. Taproot Farm has included incredibly tasty green…
