The saltiness of the cheese goes perfectly with the tannins in the spinach and the sweetness of the berries. Soaking the Halloumi leaches out its preserving salt, and also softens the cheese nicely.
250g Halloumi cheese
100g Fresh blueberries
1 cup fresh spinach
1 tbsp olive oil
For the dressing
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp lime juice
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of sea salt
Cover the Halloumi and soak in water for a few hours or overnight.
Drain and cut the Halloumi into slices.
Heat the olive oil in either a frying pan or a griddle.
Gently fry the Halloumi until lightly golden on each side. Drain on paper towel.
Mix the salad dressing ingredients.
Place the spinach in a bowl and dress.
Put the Halloumi cheese pieces on top of the spinach and sprinkle over the blueberries.
Season to taste and eat immediately
