Halloumi, Avocado & Bacon Salad

Isn't this weather glorious?! I've been soaking up the sun which must mean it's time to crack out this old favourite. It's perfect for lazy mid-week dinners or easy to store and take along to a BBQ. 

What you'll need:
  • 4-6 rashers of streaky bacon
  • Half a block of halloumi
  • 2 avocados
  • New potatoes
  • Wholegrain mustard
  • A knob of butter
  • Lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, carrots.. whatever salad you fancy! 
First of all get your potatoes on the go in a pan of salted, boiling water. Next up the bacon: if you have a George Foreman Grill this is perfect to get the right amount of crispiness, if not then slice the bacon into bitesize pieces first and then fry for 10 minutes or so. While this is all going on you can prepare your salad, cube the avocados and toss in a bowl with all your other bits. When the potatoes are done drain and return to the pan with the butter and a tablespoon or so of mustard, depending on how you like it. Then 'smash' them - use a fork or a masher but don't completely break up the potatoes. Leave in the pan and cover to keep warm and then grill your halloumi - again you can do this on a Foreman, or in a frying pan or griddle. It should only take 1-2 minutes. Add to the salad, crumble the bacon over the top and and hey presto you have a delicious and filling salad that goes pretty well with a sausage!

Enjoy the weather while it lasts amigos! x

  1. I love a good summer bbq, and for me a good bbq needs to have some sort of salad - and this one sounds delicious!
