Halloumi, watermelon & mint salad
This refreshing salad features the god of all Cypriot exports: the halloumi cheese. The watermelon and fresh mint offer a zingy background to the salty, warm, griddled cheese, and all of the flavours create a wonderful mouthful of summer. Best topped off with some freshly squeezed lemon juice for a final kick of heaven.
We love this salad. We could eat this all day. Every day. Serve up mountains for your party to offer a fresh respite from the other carb-loaded dishes.

Slice the halloumi and place into a griddle pan over a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
Cube the watermelon and slice the mint, then add to a bowl together.
Tear up your griddled halloumi and add to the salad. Serve with lemon portions and squeeze over the juice to taste.
Bake in the oven at 200°C for 20 minutes, or until they start to brown.
