This dinner on the grill is ideal for the hottest days of summer when you can't bear to turn on the oven. A bright cilantro vinaigrette complements the smoky flavor from the chipotles and grilled vegetables, while grilled chicken and halloumi cheese add substance to this healthy salad recipe you'll want to put on heavy rotation all season.



Total time

40 minutes


  • ? cup packed fresh cilantro leaves with tender stems
  • 2 onions (chopped)
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey (divided)
  • ? teaspoon salt (divided)
  • ? teaspoon ground cumin
  • 8 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (divided)
  • 1 tablespoon minced canned chipotle in adobo sauce
  • 1 ear corn, husked
  • 1 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (trimmed)
  • 3 romaine hearts (3-4 ounces each)
  • 4 ounces halloumi cheese (see Tips), cut into 6 slices


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high. Combine cilantro, scallions, lime juice, 1 teaspoon honey, ¼ teaspoon salt, cumin and 6 tablespoons oil in a mini food processor; process until smooth. Set aside. Combine chipotle, 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining 1 teaspoon honey in a small bowl. Toss the ear of corn, zucchini and onion with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and ¼ teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Season chicken with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Cut romaine hearts in half lengthwise, leaving root ends intact. Oil the grill rack (see Tips). Grill the chicken for 5 minutes, then turn and brush with the chipotle glaze. Continue grilling until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165°F, 5 to 8 minutes more. Grill the corn, zucchini and onion, turning frequently, until tender and charred in spots, 10 to 12 minutes total. Grill halloumi until golden brown and charred in spots, about 2 minutes per side. Grill the romaine, cut-side down, until lightly charred, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board. Let rest 5 minutes, then slice. Cut the kernels off the cob. Arrange the chicken, romaine, corn, zucchini, onion and halloumi on a platter. Drizzle with the reserved cilantro dressing.
