Chopped Salad with Grilled Halloumi

Quick & Easy
Serving Time Icon 4 min
Serves Number Icon Serves 6

This crunchy and easy to prepare salad gets a kick of texture and flavour from halloumi, a unique and on-trend cheese that holds its shape and turns a beautiful golden brown when grilled or panfried. Halloumi has a soft, delicate texture, but can be quite salty - no need to add extra salt!

Step 1

Horseradish Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, maple syrup, horseradish, lemon juice, salt, oregano and basil; set aside.


Step 2

In a large bowl, toss together cucumber, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Add chickpeas and drizzle with most of the dressing and stir to combine.

Step 3

Slice halloumi cheese lengthwise into 4 slices. Brush both sides with oil. Place slices on grill and grill for 2 minutes a side. Remove to cutting board and chop. Add to bowl.

Step 4

Divide lettuce onto 6 small plates. Top with salad mixture and divide beets along each side of salad. Spoon remaining dressing over beets to serve.

Panfry Variation: Brown halloumi over medium-high heat - no need to use any oil - in a non-stick skillet and serve as in recipe.
