Couscous is not a low-carb item, but lucky for us, cauliflower is the queen of vegetables and, when riced, makes a great low-carb substitute for couscous. This salad is loosely based on a dish and one of my favorite Middle Eastern condiments – Macadamia Dukkah.

This Keto Halloumi Salad recipe makes four servings. 1 serving is about half a cup of salad with two slices of halloumi and has 5g net carbs.

We recommend making your Keto Halloumi Salad fresh as it is best served warm. Leftover salad can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.
