Halloumi Salad

Oh summer and it’s incredible abundance and variety of fruit. When shopping for this recipe, I couldn’t choose just one stonefruit. Walking through an entire aisle of apricots, different plums, nectarines, peaches and so many varieties of each I just kept grabbing each and every type! The halloumi that I served all the fruit with was just so so good too. Honestly, add halloumi to anything and it’s the best dish ever. So here is a very quick and simple recipe for all halloumi lovers that I think you will really enjoy. We certainly did, and I’ll be adding this to my signature dish collection without a doubt! Serve this salad on the weekend at your bbq along with grilled vegetables and lamb koftas or stuffed vegetables. The colours and vibrancy of this salad also just makes me super happy!
