This pan-fried halloumi & peach salad on a bed of arugula is the summer salad I can’t get enough of. Topped with homemade basil oil for the most vibrant of flavors, I have no doubt you will love this salad.
I’ve been working on some fun and easy summer dinner recipes, so when I had the chance to work with Wolf Gourmet products, specifically their 8.5” inch skillet and high-performance blender, I decided to create a delicious warm-weather salad.
The 8.5” skillet is one of the most versatile pans in the kitchen, perfectly sized for preparation of smaller meals, side dishes and omelets. The flat bottom and flared sides allow food to slide out effortlessly onto the plate. Plus, it’s equipped with sturdy, ergonomic handles that fit a variety of hand sizes, making this high-performance cookware very comfortable to use.
I love using my Wolf Gourmet blender to create homemade basil oil to top the salad. This recipe makes more oil than is needed, which is fine because you will want to put it on everything.
One of the great features about this blender is the two-piece cap assembly, which includes an emulsion cup to add ingredients slowly into the blender jar. It’s easy to make fool-proof mayonnaise, dressings, marinades and more. The filler cap with measurement marks is convenient for cocktails. Mixing thick or frozen drinks is effortless with the included tamper. I use it to create delicious smoothies and the bonus: it’s so easy to clean afterwards.
Halloumi and peaches pair so well. I love the fact that this salad is a little bit different. It’s loaded with a range of flavors from salty to sweet and makes a delicious option for a vegetarian dinner.
The sweet juiciness of summer-ripe peaches is one of my favorite flavors. Pairing them with the saltiness of pan-fried halloumi and topping them off with basil oil creates the perfect summer dish.
