Very good. I did add chicken breasts and steamed green beans to make it more substantial.

Made this twice so far - 1st time I had only watercress at hand. 'twas okay, but lacked some final kick so I decided to add rocket 2nd time. Turned out really nice, fruity and refreshing (I simply love fruit/cheese combo). Kids complained that the oranges were too soggy and were rather unimpressed by watercress bit, but they're in general rather picky eaters

I've made it several times and it's always been a HIT! PLUS it sure serves for a ''wow this looks delicious'' effect! :-)))

I made this for a starter at a dinner party and it worked beautifully- a few of my friends were new to halloumi but they were soon converted. Very easy to make, though make sure the oil is well heated for the halloumi before cooking, else it will stick and fall apart.

OOhh also if you don't like walnuts, pecans work really well too.

A perfect recipe, everyone at the BBQ loved it. This could be eaten as a starter or as lunch. Fabulous!

This is a great starter. Really quick and easy. I cooked it for my patner and 11 year old daughter and we all loved it. Infact, Im thinking of using it as a starter for a dinner party i am having this weekend

Another winner for a quick late home from work dinner. Tasted fresh & zingy rather than a clash between sweet & savoury (normally hate friut or sweet things in savoury dishes). Have already put high on list to make for vegetarian friends plus can't wait to eat this on hot summers day maybe out in the Med to get even fresher flavours.

Firm family favourite - to make and to eat!

I use milder salad leaves for those that don't like peppery watercress and rocket. I think the combination with rocket tastes best.

I've also substituted pecans instead of walnuts dependent on who is dining, some folk aren't so keen on walnuts. Black seedless grapes are also good to add to the mix.
