Ingredients

Preparation time: 20 min
Amount of servings: 2

  • Halloumi, 100g
  • Cherry tomatoes, 50g
  • Cucumber, 1 medium
  • Sun-dried tomatoes, 30g
  • Romaine lettuce, 2 cups
  • Black olives, 30g
  • Lemon juice, 2 tsp
  • Olive oil, 2 tbsp
  • Sesame seeds (roasted), 1 tsp

Instructions

  1. Cut the halloumi into cubes and fry them on medium heat for 3-4 min.
  2. Chop vegetables, sun-dried tomatoes, and black olives.
  3. Place on a serving plate: lettuce, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, and fried halloumi cheese on the top.
  4. Sprinkle with seeds, olive oil, and lemon juice.

Tips

  • This recipe is very flexible. If you do not have sesame seeds, you can use any seeds you have on hand: pepitas (pumpkin seeds), flax, and sunflower seeds.
  • Instead of olive oil, you can also use oil from sun-dried tomatoes. It will give a nice flavor and light acidity.
  • Romaine lettuce is also substitutable: rocket salad. Spinach, iceberg salad. As for me, romaine works the best because it's juicy enough, has a fresh taste, and is chewy.
