Warm Halloumi and Peach Salad

Edited by

A light, delicious and cool dish for summer nights.

Ingredients:

(Serves 2)

3 ripe but firm peaches, halved and stoned

250g Halloumi cheese

2 tbsp olive oil

3 red chicory, root intact, quartered lengthways

1 bunch spring onions, trimmed, cut into 2cm lengths

For the dressing

1 red chilli, deseeded, finely chopped

½ large bunch fresh coriander, leaves and stalks roughly chopped

5 tbsp white wine vinegar

3 tbsp clear honey

Preparation:

Make the dressing by mixing everything together in a small bowl. Cover and set aside.

Cut each peach half into wedges.

Cut Halloumi into 1cm thick slices.

Heat half the oil in a large frying pan. Fry the cheese for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and almost crusty. Remove from the pan and keep warm.

Add the chicory and onions to the hot pan, stir-fry until slightly wilted and coloured. Transfer onto absorbent kitchen towel.

Heat the remaining oil. Add the peach wedges and fry for a minute or two, until softened, lightly coloured but still retaining their shape.

Combine all the ingredients together then pour on the dressing.

Spoon onto individual plates.
