    About this recipe: A tangy garlic lemon vinaigrette plays well with mild halloumi cheese, which sears nicely without melting, over a bed of spicy rocket.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
    • 4 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon honey
    • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
    • 1/4 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves
    • salt and ground black pepper
    • 100g rocket
    • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
    • 120g halloumi cheese, cut into 4 slices

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Whisk together the lemon juice, rice vinegar, 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, honey, Dijon mustard, garlic, thyme and oregano. Season generously with salt and pepper.
    2. Toss the rocket with the red onion. Divide the salad onto 4 salad plates.
    3. Heat a dry non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Brush the halloumi cheese slices with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, and fry until deeply browned, then turn and continue to cook until deeply browned, 1-2 minutes each side.
    4. Place a halloumi slice on each salad, drizzle with the lemon dressing and serve immediately.

    Tip

    If you are already using the grill or barbecue, you can cook the halloumi very easily in a tray under the grill or by placing the halloumi directly on the barbecue grate.

    Needed a rapid supper recipe involving rocket and halloumi (already in the fridge) found and made this - absolutely delicious. Had all the ingredients to hand although no fresh but dried herbs. Loved the zing, the speed and the satisfaction. will be making again - 17 Nov 2015
