Halloumi, Tomato and Avocado Salad

I caught this recipe the other night on telly and thought it could easily be adapted to make a great salad. With Mangy out with the boys tonight, I figured I’d whisk this up for dinner for myself. He’s not very fond of halloumi, so I doubt he’ll regret not being home for this meal.

You’ll need:

  • 10 cherry tomatoes (cut into halves)
  • half an avocado (peeled and diced)
  • 100g halloumi (sliced thinly)

Dressing:

  • 2 fresh red chillies (chopped finely)
  • 1 garlic clove (grated)
  • zest of half a lemon
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon roasted cumin powder
  • Salt to taste

Method:

Mix the dressing ingredients together, set aside for the flavours to mingle. Heat a non-stick pan and fry both sides of the halloumi for a couple of minutes until golden brown. Arrange tomatoes and avocado on a plate, lay out the halloumi slices on top. Spoon the dressing over the halloumi pieces. Enjoy!
