Haloumi and Watermelon Salad

Prep 10 minutes | Cook 2 minutes | Total 10 minutes

Haloumi is a semi-hard, salty, and scrumptious cheese, which is fantastic grilled or fried. It is made from a mixture of goat’s and sheep’s milk. We call it the squeaky cheese because it makes a squeak when you cut it. This salad combination of salty and sweet makes for an amazing fresh flavour sensation and is best served while the cheese is still warm.

  • ¼ watermelon
  • 180 g haloumi
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • Yoghurt Dressing
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon mint sauce
  • 1 handful mint leaves, chopped
  • Serves 4
Cut watermelon and haloumi into 1 cm thick slices with a similar shape.

Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Toss haloumi slices in oil, then fry cheese for 1 minute each side until golden brown.

In a small bowl, mix dressing ingredients. Taste and adjust to your liking.

Arrange the haloumi and watermelon in alternating layers across a plate. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and top off with a squeeze of lemon juice.
