Quick Tomato and Halloumi Salad

Its summer, it’s too hot cook, and too hot for junk food. Finally, a reason to eat healthily without finding it a struggle. Well, here something I throw together when its sweltering outside.


  • Halloumi – Half a block
  • Tomatoes (Various types)
  • Half a Red Onion
  • 1x Carrots
  • Celery
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Fresh Basil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Pesto


  • Sharp Knife
  • Mandoline
  • Heavy Bottomed Frying Pan


  1. Preheat your frying pan
  2. Get out your trusty mandoline for this, set it on quite a thin setting and slice; the carrot, two/three sticks of celery, the half a red onion
  3. Chop the tomatoes into reasonable size chunks.
  4. Mix together the veg with a splash of balsamic vinegar and some extra virgin olive oil if you happen to have some. Add a pinch of salt and some black pepper. Leave to rest
  5. Slice the Halloumi into 5mm slices
  6. Fry the Halloumi until crispy on each side
  7. Tear up some of the basil and mix it through the veg mix
  8. Add the halloumi to the salad mix and give it another stir
  9. Drop some “blobs” of pesto onto the salad.
  10. ENJOY!
