    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.

    A summery cheese salad, this has been devised with a nod towards the Mediterranean. The salty tang of creamy feta cheese is contrasted with bright pink and orange fruit, luscious and full of sweet flavour. A mix of salad leaves adds a slightly peppery taste, and toasted seeds give crunch.
