Baked Halloumi salad with a caper, garlic, lime & mustard dressing with fresh coriander leaves

on 10/07/2009

This is a lovely & easy salad with fried Halloumi slices & an apart dressing. The dressing is a bit tangy & goes so well with the fried Halloumi. I usually, serve it with torn pieces of Turkish bread topped with sesame seeds. So, you can mop up the juices.
Lovely !
Printable recipe here!
Recipe: For 2 persons, as lunch
* For the Halloumi:
1 Halloumi cheese, unwrapped, cheese pad dry on kitchen paper
seasoned flour: made by adding Maldon sea salt & finely grinned black pepper into 2 to 4 tablespoons of flour, well mixed together
a fruity extra virgin olive oil
*For the dressing:
1 lime: zest & juice
1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
1 heaped tablespoon of finely chopped fresh coriander (cilantro ) leaves
1 heaped tablespoon of drained capers ( small-sized ones )
2 tablespoons of a fruity extra virgin olive oil
1 large clove of garlic, peeled & finely chopped
1 heaped teaspoon of Dijon mustard
Grinded fresh black pepper
Maldon sea salt
* To serve :
1 large turkish bread with sesame seeds, torn & cut horizontally in 2
2 little Gem lettuce, washed, spun dry, cleaned & leaves torn
1. Take a chopping board & slice the Halloumi cheese in about 8 slices, including the end.
2. Make the dressing. Take a jam pot & place all the ingredients for the dressing in it. Put the lid well on. Shake the jam pot up & down until all is well combined. Taste. It has to taste fab!
3. When you are ready to have lunch, take a large non stick pan & heat up on medium heat. In the meantime, dip each Halloumi slice into the seasoned flour on both sides & shake off the excess. When the pan is hot, add the Halloumi slices & fry until golden on both sides. This takes about 1 to 2 minutes per side.
4. Take your plates & place little gem lettuce leaves all over the plate nicely. Add the golden Halloumi slices in a round & drizzle the dressing over the top & place a bit into the middle.
Serve with torn pieces or slices of Turkish bread. Enjoy! ♥ Stay Tuned & subscribe by email! Join 1,800 email subscribers now!!! It is free!!!! Click the link here below to subscribe!!!

    Hello Sophie, this looks so fresh, almost spring-like. I hope the taste is strong, though. But the haloumi will guarantee that, I suppose. Racing Dad.

  30. Pam says:

    I love every single ingredient used. Looks and sounds tasty.

  31. I absolutely love Halloumi when it's warm and soft but it cools quickly and then becomes rubbery. Have you had that problem?

  32. Kerstin says:

    Looks good – I love all the layers of flavor! You've reminded me I have some capers that I need to use!
