Rinse under cold water, then pat dry with paper towels. (TIP: This will reduce the saltiness of cheese.)

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add almonds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on almonds so they don't burn!)

Transfer halloumi to the plate with almonds and set aside.
