Ingredients

  • Florette Duo with Lambs & Ruby Chard
  • 1 Small Red Onion (very finely sliced)
  • 150g Cucumber (cut into chunks)
  • 200g Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
  • 50g Kalamata or Other Black Olives (stoned)
  • Flat-leaf Parsley Leaves
  • 50g Flour
  • Large Pinch of Smoked Paprika
  • 250g Halloumi Cheese (cut into 8 slices)
  • Rapeseed or Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • For the dressing:
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • Lemon Juice
  • 1 Small Garlic Clove (crushed)
  • Dried Chilli Flakes
  • Sea Salt
  • Rapeseed Oil

Directions

  1. To make the dressing stir together the honey, lemon juice, garlic, chilli flakes and salt until well combined, then whisk in 2 tbsp of oil.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the onion, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, parsley and salad leaves.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, paprika and some salt and pepper. Press the halloumi slices into the seasoned flour and shake off any excess.
  4. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the halloumi slices over a medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side, until golden and slightly soft inside.
  5. Toss the salad mixture from the large bowl together with the dressing, turning the vegtables over with your hands to make sure everything is lightly coated.
  6. Divide the salad between four plates, placing two pieces of the hot halloumi on each one and serve immediately.
