..IT WITH HALLOUMI

Griddled halloumi with herb & caper dressing. Heat a griddle pan until really hot. Cut a 240g pack vegetarian halloumi cheese into 8 slices, then cook for 2-3 mins each side. Remove from the pan and keep warm. Pour in 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, juice of ½ a lemon and 2 tbsp capers, then warm through. Add 2 handfuls chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as parsley and oregano, to the pan just before serving. Check the seasoning, then drizzle the dressing over the halloumi to serve.
