Barbequed Haloumi

I first experienced haloumi several years ago whilst on holiday with my family in Cyprus. This dish is very tasty, and goes well with a mixed salad.

Preparation time 10 minutes
Cooking time 5 minutes
  • 5oz (150g) mixed green lettuce leaves, including lambs lettuce.
  • 9oz (250g) haloumi cheese
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 large tomatoes (cut into pieces)
  • For the dressing
  • 4 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon castor sugar
  • Salt and ground black pepper
For the dressing, mix the olive oil, lemon juice, and sugar together in a large bowl.  Season with salt and pepper, stir in the chopped parsley.  Add the mixed green salad leaves and tomatoes, and toss to coat with the oil.  Transfer to a large serving bowl.
Slice the halloumi cheese and brush with olive oil, cook briefly  on a grill on a medium barbeque for two minutes each side, until golden.  Arrange the haloumi on top of the salad, pour over the dressing.
