Method

  1. Halve the watermelon lengthways. Slice into eighths, cut away the skin and pith and then slice into 1cm thick slices to make small triangles. Place the melon in a large bowl and add all the herbs.
  2. Heat a griddle pan until very hot and griddle the halloumi slices for 30 secs on each side until well browned. Cool for a few moments before adding to the salad.
  3. Whisk the lemon juice and olive oil together and season to taste. Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and toss gently to combine. Serve immediately with griddled or toasted Italian bread.

Yum! This is so fresh and the saltiness of the halloumi with the juicy watermelon works really well. Its so easy to throw together but its good-looking and tasty enough to impress any lunch guest.

Watermelon and halloumi is a classic in cyprus and the two go superb together. I served this at a dinner party with pomegranate seeds sprinkled over for the veggies and chorizo for the carnivorous. Went down really well and it was easy too!
