Cypriot halloumi, watermelon and mint salad

About this recipe: Halloumi cheese and fresh, juicy watermelon are a fantastic salty-sweet pair. In Cyprus, fresh halloumi slices are served with watermelon for breakfast or dessert, but I think frying the halloumi and adding mint increases the flavour and makes a delightful summer salad.
