A Simple Halloumi Salad

When it comes to cooking, sometimes I want something that's quick to prepare, easy to make and tasty, and I think a simple salad is the way forward. There are so many combinations and ingredients you can use to make a lovely lunchtime salad, the possibilities are simply endless. I wanted to create something that was a light snack but also very filling, which is why I chose to use Halloumi cheese, as its very tasty and a great source of protein.

You will need:
3 Thick Slices of Halloumi Cheese
A Handful of Mixed Salad Leaves
Pitted Green Olives (Mine are Basil and Garlic ones from my Graze Box)
5 Cherry Tomatoes, Halved
Cucumber Slices
Feta Cheese

Prepare your salad base. For this I used a bag of mixed salad leaves.
Slice your cherry tomatoes in half.
Slice your cucumber.
Add your olives
Crumble over some feta cheese.
Heat your frying pan on a medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil.
Slice Halloumi into large (1cm) slices and season with salt and pepper.
Fry for a couple of minutes on each side until golden brown.
Place on top of your salad, drizzle over some olive oil or dressing, and enjoy!
