This refreshing and bright salad is perfect for a backyard get together. Juicy watermelon and barley pop in each bite and balanced with the salty kick of olives and cheese it will be a new favourite.



  1. Bring barley to boil in a pot of water and boil for about 25 minutes or until tender and slightly chewy. Drain well and rinse under cold water.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together cooked barley, watermelon, 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the oil, basil and salt.
  3. Spread arugula over a platter and top with watermelon mixture; set aside.
  4. Brush halloumi with remaining oil and grill over medium heat until marked. Remove from heat and place over top of salad. Sprinkle olives over top to serve.
