Ingredients

  • 300 grams of new potatoes – halved or quartered if large
  • 1 red pepper sliced
  • 1⁄2 a cucumber diced

  • 25 g pitted black olives, sliced (optional)

“Halloumi is a semi hard cheese and retains its shape with a soft, springy texture when
cooked. It can be pan-fried, grilled and is especially delicious added to skewers on a
bbq. It is best eaten straight away.”

What to do

  • Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 10-15 mins until tender.
  • While the potatoes cook, mix together the pepper, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, onion and oregano in a large bowl.
  • When the potatoes are ready, drain well and leave to cool slightly
  • When cool, sprinkle with the basil or parsley and mix with the other ingredients,
  • Cut the halloumi cheese into four thick slices, drizzle with the oil and dust all over with the paprika
  • Heat a frying pan and cook the halloumi for 3–4 minutes, turning once, until golden.
  • Remove from heat and squeeze over the lemon juice.
  • Divide into 4 and place a piece of halloumi on the top.
  • Enjoy straightaway.
