Grilled Halloumi and herb salad

I know halloumi isn't made in Lancashire but hey I am allowed to try other classic dishes from other countries. I wanted a cheese that would stand up the robust flavours of a herb salad. I love the way in southern Europe they aren't afraid to use herbs as a salad ingredient, which impart a lovely herbal background to the salad. Absolutely delicious and a salad that will transport to the Mediterranean in moments.

  • Halloumi, sprinkled with smoked paprika
  • Cucumber - chunky chopped
  • Tomatoes - chunky chopped
  • Mixed salad leaves - torn into large pieces
  • Rocket - torn
  • Flat leaf parsley - torn , small handful
  • Mint - 10  leaves , each torn into 3 pieces
  • Olives - black or green, whatever you have
  •  Extra virgin Olive oil or  cold pressed rapeseed oil - 2 or 2 tbsp
  • 1 clove of garlic crushed
  • Honey - 1tsp
  • Lemon juice - 1tbsp
  • Assemble your salad in a large bowl
  • Mix the oil, lemon juice, honey and crushed garlic in a separate small bowl, this is your salad dressing
  • Now grill the halloumi until golden on both sides
  • Tosh your salad with the dressing, place on your serving plate
  • Top the salad with the halloumi slices
This salad would also be lovely served with lasagne or moussaka.
