Halloumi, watermelon and mint salad

Halloumi cheese and fresh, juicy watermelon are a fantastic salty-sweet pair. In Cyprus, fresh halloumi slices are served with watermelon for breakfast or dessert, but I think frying the halloumi and adding mint increases the flavour and makes a delightful summer salad.

Serves: 6
120g halloumi cheese
1 teaspoon olive oil
500g fresh watermelon cubes
12 mint leaves, sliced
1 small onion, thinly sliced

Prep:15min › Cook:5min › Ready in:20min
Break the halloumi cheese into small pieces. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat, and cook and stir the halloumi until golden, about 3 minutes.
Toss the watermelon cubes, mint leaves, onion slices and fried halloumi in a salad bowl.
