  • Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Salad:
  • 4 slices halloumi cheese
  • 4 cups arugula
  • 1 cup watermelon cubes


  1. Whisk extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, mint, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook halloumi slices on hot skillet until lightly golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
  3. Toss the arugula and watermelon cubes together in a salad bowl; top with grilled haloumi. Drizzle dressing over the salad just before serving.
Mealthy tip:

Pomegranate molasses is a staple of Middle Eastern cuisine and is simply reduced sweetened pomegranate juice. It has a wonderful sweet-tart flavor.

Pomegranate molasses with the lemon juice makes the perfect dressing for this salad. The halloumi cheese and arugula make a really nice combo with the watermelon. I love finding recipes with watermelon in a savory application! Fantastic.
