Keto Roasted Pumpkin & Halloumi Salad

Skip to the recipe

The somewhat sweet roasted pumpkin combined with salty cheese is an amazing experience. This salad is somewhat higher in carbs than we would normally post, so keep in mind that it’s better for those of you who are eating within a shorter time period each day. You can lessen the carbs by reducing the amount of pumpkin used and replace it with a lower-carb vegetable like cauliflower or zucchini.
