Halloumi salad - recipe

Fried halloumi is quite frankly delicious.  Salty, chewy and sort of squeaky.

To call this a recipe is a massive overstatement, you just need a block of halloumi cheese (which you can buy just about everywhere now), a squeeze of lemon and a finely chopped chilli, if you fancy a little heat.

Cut the halloumi into slices - around 0.5cm - 1cm should do it.

Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat (if you're worried about the cheese sticking, you could use a tiny bit of oil) add the cheese slices in and cook gently for a few minutes on each side.  The cheese is cooked when it's lightly browned - keep an eye on it though, it does burn quite easily.

Squeeze a little lemon juice over the cheese and sprinkle with fresh chilli (if using).

I served mine as a starter with a tomato salad (chopped tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and mint leaves dressed with a little olive oil and white wine vinegar).
