Watermelon and Haloumi Salad

This is the easiest starter. We often get a few packets of haloumi, grill it up and serve before lunch as a snack!

It’s yummiest tossed with salad greens and also really good with lentils and rocket.

  • ¼ watermelon, cut into small cubes
  • Grilled haloumi (above), cut into strips
  • 6-8 heirloom tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 bunch of mint, roughly chopped
  • Aged balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil (optional)



  1. Just take a packet of haloumi, cut into 1.5cm slices and grill for 2 minutes each side, until you see the grilled stripes.
  2. Toss together the watermelon, haloumi, tomatoes and mint. Top with a generous drizzle of balsamic vinegar, and some olive oil too, if desired.
