Can you reheat halloumi?
This halloumi salad tastes best when fresh but you can meal prep this recipe or prepare the salad bowls in advance.
If you are going to prep this recipe, first of all, you must ensure that you use fresh salad and give it a rinse to keep it lasting long.
To reheat the halloumi, cook it for 40 seconds in the microwave. It still tastes okay after 2 to 3 days but the longer you leave it, the more rubbery it will become.
However, if you prepare the salad bowls in advance, it only takes 5 minutes to cook it fresh which is not bad timing on a weeknight.
