The lip-smacking salinity of the halloumi is tempered here by the sweet carrot ribbons and lime-pepped dressing. This salad is quick to assemble and looks super-impressive thanks to the undulating ribbons of carrot. Don’t forget to add the sesame seeds, which bring toasty pops of flavor to each bite!
