Warm Halloumi and Harissa Salad
Here is a very simple recipe for a tasty warm halloumi salad that I think is just right for the weather, rather cold but with some lovely sun!
Halloumi sliced ( I had 4 slices But I'm greedy)
One Red Onion
Sweet long Red Pepper
Small Vine Tomatoes
It's just a case of pan frying the onion and peppers in a spoon of the harissa, using some of the lovely oil you get in the jar with it and cook for around five minutes before adding the tomatoes, which I sliced in half. You want the onions to almost caramelise so they get that lovely sweet flavour and when this has happened put the contents of your pan onto a plate and put the sliced halloumi in the same pan and fry on both sides. When the halloumi is all crispy on the outside and a but soft in the middle, lay it on top of your onion, pepper and tomato mixture and sprinkle over some chopped mint.
My lovely friend bought me a jar of home made harissa from a lady at her local farmers market in Lewes, East Sussex.
The harissa give the halloumi a lovely golden colour a bit like saffron, very pretty.
