Solo: Sesame Haloumi Salad

Sesame coated haloumi cheese with a crispy salad and balsamic dressing.

Ingredients to serve 1

  • 100g x halloumi
  • ¼ cup x sesame seeds
  • 2 x radishes
  • ½ x orange
  • 25g x rocket leaves
  • ¼ x cucumber
  • 1 tbsp x olive oil (for salad dressing – from your pantry)
  • ½ tbsp x balsamic vinegar
  • olive oil, salt and pepper (from your pantry)


Step 1

Slice the radishes very finely – you can use a potato peeler. Slice the cucumber finely.

Step 2

Peel the oranges using a sharp knife as follows: cut off the top and bottom. Then cut the skin away and remove any remaining pith. Cut between the membranes to segment.

Step 3

Slice the halloumi in 1cm thick slices. Scatter the sesame seeds over a small plate and press both sides of the halloumi slices into the sesame seeds so that they stick. Place a pan on the stove on a medium (to low) heat and add a little olive oil. Fry your pieces of sesame-crusted haloumi until the seeds are golden brown – about 3 to 5 minutes each side.

Step 4

Make the salad dressing by mixing the oil (see quantity above) and vinegar together in a mug. Add salt and pepper to taste. Make the salad by tossing the sliced radish, sliced cucumber, orange segments (and any juice), rocket leaves and watercress in a large bowl. Cover with the salad dressing and toss lightly.

Step 5

To serve, place the salad on the plate and top with sesame halloumi slices.
