  • Serves 6

This salad makes a perfect vegetarian meal. To save time, cook haloumi in advance and then flash in a hot oven for 2-3 minutes just prior to serving.

Ingredients:

  • juice of 1 orange
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbs wholegrain mustard
  • 125g baby rocket leaves
  • 1 cup parsley leaves
  • 3 oranges, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
  • 180g Lemnos Haloumi, cut into 1/2 cm thick slices
  • plain flour, for dusting
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup natural flaked almonds, roughly chopped
  • oil, for shallow frying

Method:

  1. Combine orange juice, oil, garlic and mustard in a jar and shake until well combined.
  2. Arrange rocket, parsley and orange slices on a serving platter.
  3. Coat haloumi in flour, dip in egg and roll in combined breadcrumbs and almonds, pressing firmly.
  4. Heat oil in a frypan over medium heat and cook haloumi on each side, until golden. Drain on absorbent paper, before adding to salad greens. Drizzle with dressing and serve immediately.
