Method

  1. To make the dressing, whisk together the lime juice, mustard, honey, oil and some seasoning. Pour half into a large bowl, add the sliced apples and pears, then gently toss everything together so all the fruit is coated. Cover and set aside. The fruit will sit happily now for up to 3 hrs without browning.

  2. When you’re ready to eat, warm a large frying pan over a medium heat. Season the slices of halloumi with pepper (it doesn’t need any salt as it’s quite a salty cheese), then fry in batches for 2-3 mins on each side until the cheese is golden brown and beginning to crisp. You can keep the halloumi warm in a low oven while you fry the rest.

  3. At the last minute, scoop the apples and pears out of the dressing (it will have gone watery with the moisture of the fruit, so discard), and layer up on a large platter with the radishes, carrot sticks, pecans and lamb’s lettuce. Top with the hot halloumi slices, then drizzle over the remaining dressing.

Made it for lunch, and only for 2. Absolutely delicious! I will definitely make it again!

The original recipe says it serves 8. When I make it for two of us, I halve the vegetables and dressing and just use one pack of halloumi. It's a great lunch - really tasty!

I haven't made this yet but really want to as I love haloumi and all salad but I was wondering would this recipe make enough for a troop of soldiers as there is only 2 of us. Does anyone know how many people it serves as the nutrition advice doesn't really say. Are all the recipes here for 6 to 8 people. Thank you everyone.

I made this for a dinner party. It was very easy and most of the preparation was done earlier in the day, only the frying of the cheese was done at the last minute It was full of flavour and looked great served on a large platter. All my guests came back for more!! I will make it again.
