Easy Halloumi Salad Recipe

_R014918 I’ve expressed my love for halloumi on here before – I love it. It’s one of my favourite cheeses and super versatile. Truth be told, I am not a fan of cooking. I love food, but I loathe coming home from work and figuring out what to cook (thank god for Ciaran). In comes halloumi – It is so easy to throw on the grill and in a mere matter of minutes it’s cooked. One of my favourite ways to use this delicious salty cheese is in a salad and this roasted pepper salad is the most simple thing to make, perfect if you’re like me and aren’t a fan of cooking.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 block of halloumi (any brand you like)
  • 1 pack of rocket
  • 3 peppers – red, orange and yellow (we use the Sainsbury’s basic pack)
  • Pine Nuts
  • Paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Nice bottle of balsamic

Directions: 

  • Heat up a non-stick pan on high with a bit of olive oil
  • Heat up a small sauce pan on medium
  • While the pans are heating up, cut the halloumi into thin slices (it cooks better and quicker when sliced thin)
  • Chop the peppers into small chunks
  • Prepare two bowls with equal amounts of rocket
  • Once the non-stick pan is heated up, throw on the peppers first and season with salt and pepper, let them simmer for 3-4 minutes
  • Throw on the halloumi at the same time and season with paprika
  • Toss the pine nuts into the small sauce pan and allow to toast for 10 minutes
  • Continue to turn the peppers until they are nicely charred on the outside
  • Once the halloumi is golden brown on one side, flip all pieces over and leave to cook for 3-5 minutes or until golden
  • Once fully cooked, remove the peppers and halloumi from the pan
  • Toss the peppers in a bit of balsamic and place evenly into the bowls on top of the rocket
  • Dice up the cooked halloumi and evenly place into the bowls
  • Remove the sauce pan from heat and toss the toasted pine nuts on top
  • Serve whilst the halloumi is still hot – pairs great with a glass of Sauvignon blanc

And voila – in 20 minutes you have a super healthy, delicious and hearty dinner!
