I love using fruits in salads, plums are juicy, sweet and completely in season right now. I was inspired to make this salad after a visit to my local supermarket, where these ingredients caught my fancy. The salty halloumi cheese contrasts against the bitter leaves and sweet plums to create a fabulous taste sensation.
Halloumi cheese - one small pack
2 yellow plums
5-6 pink radishes
Half red onion, sliced into rings
Handful of fresh pomegranate
Handful of bitter leaves
Finely sliced flat leaf parsley
2 tablespoons of raspberry vinegar
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Cut the halloumi into 1cm thick rectangles and fry in a hot frying pan or griddle until they turn golden. Cut the plums and radishes into thin slices and add in the bitter leaves, halloumi and pomegranate. Dress with raspberry vinegar and olive oil. Serve immediately with a handful of chopped flat leaf parsley sprinkled over the top.
