Ingredients:

A bag of Mixed Salad Leaves

Handful of Cherry Tomatoes (cut into half)

1 Packet of Halloumi (we cut them into 4 parts for two of us)

1 Apple

Sprinkling of flour

Butter for frying

Dressing:

Olive oil

A sprinkling of Oregano

Balsamic Vinegar

Salt

Sugar

Mustard ( any you prefer)

Lime/lemon juice (optional)

Method:

For the salad, just chop the apples into long thin stripes or julienne as they call it. Toss in the a bowl with mixed salad leaves & tomatoes. Set aside.

Now, prepare the ingredients for the dressing. For convenience, remember the measurement of 2:1 for olive oil and balsamic vinegar respectively. Everything else, add a little bit at a time. Taste and add more until it is perfect. Set it aside.

Now for the halloumi, sprinkle and tap some flour on each side of halloumi and fry it in butter on a hot pan. Let it brown for a minute or two and turn over. Alternatively, you can grill the cheese if you have a grill. I would suggest putting a tinned foil at the bottom of the grill, just incase the cheese sticks at the bottom.

Toss the dressing in with the salad and plate it out with the crispy savoury halloumi on top. Enjoy with fresh glass of orange juice!!

P.S: Please try and use organic and fair trade products as much as possible. We can’t eradicate but can reduce negative environmental impacts on our plant in this lifetime.
