HALLOUMI, ROAST PEPPER AND SPINACH SALAD

Spring is here and a new batch of ingredients are at their best. I love spinach in a salad and it has a whole different flavour when it’s cooked. Peppers are coming and bring a lovely sweetness when roasted. Halloumi just works so well in the salad with its salty goodness.

ingredients (serves 3-4)

  • 3 bell peppers (preferably one of each colour)
  • 1tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 200g spinach leaves
  • 250g halloumi cheese
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

peppers

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark mark 4/170°C/350°F.
  2. Cut the peppers into strips, mix with the rapeseed oil, salt and pepper and then roast on a tray for 25-30 minutes until soft. Take out and leave to slightly cool.
  3. Slice the halloumi into half center meter strips and cook the in a frying pan with no oil until golden brown on each side.
  4. In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients together with the lemon juice and serve. The Oil from the peppers will mix with the lemon to create a dressing.
  5. Enjoy!
