This recipe was sent in from my friend Matti. This is one of his favorites. It is a great alternative to your standard salad. Halloumi Cheese – which I just learned about, is amazingly versatile, you can grill it, sauté it, fry it, grate it or serve it fresh! In Matti’s recipe you sauté it! It’s delicious!
Prep time: 15 minutes
1 cup of fresh sliced strawberries
2 small spring onions chopped
1 cucumber cubed
4 cups of mixed salad greens
1 cup Halloumi Cheese
¼ cup sliced black olives
Salad Dressing Ingredients:
1 teaspoon strong mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
1 table spoon orange juice
2 table spoons lemon juice
2 table spoons virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon crunched black pepper
Combine strawberries, onions, cucumber and salad greens in a bowl. Set aside. Mix all the salad dressing ingredients together and pour over greens. Refrigerate.
Cut Halloumi Cheese into ½” slices place in a skillet & sauté over medium heat for approximately 2 minutes on each side. Cheese will turn golden brown instead of melting.
Garnish Salad with sautéed cheese slices and olives
Thanks so much Matti, I’m making the “Strawberry- Halloumi Salad” for a picnic this week end!
