Halloumi and Peach Salad
This fresh and light salad celebrates summer in all it's glory!
Summer fruit and sunny days.
Fruit and cheese is a combination that is completely and utterly irresistible.
Salty halloumi, sweet and juicy peaches, zesty lime, crunchy salad leaves and spicy dukkah means you get absolutely everything in one bite - sweet, salty, zesty and spicy!
Feel free to mix and match the flavours. There are so many ways to enjoy this super simple salad. You can add in all sorts of extra bits - arugula, walnuts, cherries, green beans, balsamic vinegar... You really can't go wrong! Feel free to grill the peaches and halloumi too. Perfect for a BBQ!
I am not usually a salad fan, caesar salad and salad nicoise bore me to tears and always leave me hungry.
But for extra special salads I make an exception and this one is definitely extra special!
