Super quick squeaky cheese salad

thumbnail for this post

A super quick tea, ten minutes from coming in the door to getting in your face. This is also a super quick write up too, sorry.

You will need

  • A bag of mixed leaves, I picked up a spicy bitter one
  • A pack of halloumi, cut into rough cubes (a bit more than a centimetre)
  • The seeds of a pomegranate (I cheated and used those that come in a tub)
  • A tablespoon of tahini
  • The zest and juice of a lemon
  • Pita breads or some sort seeded flatbreads
  • Pomegranate syrup for drizzling


Once this gets started it’s all hands on deck

  • Pop the cheese in a hot frying pan with a teaspoon of oil, keep them turning until they are browned on all sides
  • Pop the flatbreads in the toaster
  • Whisk the lemon juice, zest and tahini into a smooth paste in a bowl big enough to hold all the ingrediants
  • Once the cheese is browned dump everything excet the breads into the bowl and stir vigerously until everytihing is coats
  • Pile it all into or on the breads
  • Drizzle the syrup over the top


Sweat, sour, salty, crunchy, deep and rich. It’s not the prettiest dish because the tahini and lemon is a bit grey A big handful of toasted nuts and seeds wouldn’t go a miss.
