I always have halloumi in the fridge, summer or winter it will be there in the back of the salad draw, which I just have full of cheese. But I have only ever grilled or fried or baked it, I have not eaten it raw, until it got grated by mistake. And I decided I liked it raw. Although you will be pleased to hear it still squeaks.
At this time of year I am lucky that salad can be obtained from a walk down into the pottager and polytunnel. I have lettuce; lambs lettuce and rocket tomatoes, basil, fennel sugar snaps and nasturtium flowers. I have cucumber coming but this is not ready yet. I also have baby courgettes which I add to salads by slicing finely.
So this dish comprises of me walking into the garden, giving the salad a quick rinse, I add the sugar snaps in bite size pieces, and then put everything on a plate, then grate the halloumi on top. I also add any seeds I have in the cupboards for extra crunch. I don’t feel it needs salad dressing as it has the halloumi, but that doesn’t mean you don’t……
Then just eat with a small glass (or 2) of white wine.
