Halloumi And Tomato Salad

  • 1 pkt Halloumi cheese
  • 1 beef tomato or 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 sprig of basil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Virgin olive oil, vinegar and oregano dressing
Cut Halloumi into 1cm (1/2") slices. Cut tomatoes in to 1cm (1/2") slices. Arrange a piece of Halloumi on a plate followed by a slice of tomato and a basil leaf. Repeat until you cover the whole plate in a circle. Drizzle over olive oil and season to taste.

Grill It

It softens into a fine, almost transparently thin crust, trapping its entire aroma on the inside.

Fry It

It acquires a golden crust while on the inside remaining juicy without absorbing any oil.

Grate It

It goes beautifully with pasta or as a filling for ravioli.

Slice It

It makes unusually good combinations with seasonal fruit such as watermelon, grapes, or figs. The national snack of Cyprus is a sandwich with Halloumi and smoked ham.
