Great tomatoes and grilled halloumi go well with a drizzling of Za'atar vinaigrette and fresh herbs.
Blot your sliced of cheese gently with a paper towel on both sides and very light brush with olive oil.
Onto the hottest part of the grill, lay the halloumi slices until well grilled, turning to complete both sides.
Remove from the grill to a platter.
On a serving platter, arrange the tomatoes, halloumi, and basil (tearing into bite sized pieces as you go).
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Drizzle on the Za'atar vinaigrette.
The tomato and halloumi platter goes well with crusty bread like semi di sesame either served on the side on top of grilled slices of bread.
If heirloom tomatoes are not in season you can use whatever tomatoes are best.
Instead of grilled halloumi you can also substitute fresh mozzarella.
For a vegan version try grilling your favorite cheeses (cut from a block, not the sandwich slices) or omit the cheese.
This recipe also works well as a large platter for a group.
