Haloumi and Avocado Salad Recipe

Slices of salty, squeaky haloumi cheese are pan fried until golden brown and served on a bed of avocado, tomato, green onion and baby spinach. The amount of haloumi cheese can be increased to make a more substantial meal.

Serves 3 as a light meal.

We use a 20ml tablespoon and 250ml measuring cup for all of our recipes.

75g baby spinach leaves
1 large avocado, peeled and sliced
180g cherry tomatoes, halved
24g (1/4 cup) finely chopped green onions (green shallots)
1 tablespoon (20ml) oil
180g haloumi cheese

2 tablespoons (40ml) oil
2 tablespoons (40ml) lemon juice
Ground black pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic chives (or similar)

Divide the spinach, avocado, tomato and green onion between three serving plates. ©

Place the dressing ingredients in a small screw-top jar.

Cut the haloumi cheese into nine 3/4cm slices. Heat one tablespoon of oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add haloumi slices and fry until golden brown on both sides, turning once. The haloumi should take about two minutes to cook.

Place three slices of haloumi on top of each salad. Shake jar to combine dressing ingredients, and drizzle dressing over the salads. Serve immediately.

This looks divine - What oil is best to use in the dressing?? Is extra virgin ok or something with a milder flavour? thanks! I totally LOVE this website

We recommend that you use your favourite type of oil in the dressing. Extra-virgin olive oil would be suitable.

This was so delicious I had it two days in a row. Served lamp chops for my husband to have with his but I didn't feel it needed anything else :) Yum!

This was sooo good. Added a couple of fried eggs on top as I was hungry but absolutely loved it. Extra virgin olive oil was a tad strong though
