André’s Halloumi, Peach and Chilli Salad

Andre's Grilled Peach and Halloumi Salad - Rozanne Stevens

BBQ – More than bangers ya know !!

My brother André is the natural gourmand in our family, effortlessly putting ingredients together to create superb meals.

After visiting Greece in his early twenties, André came back with a passion for Greek cuisine: rosemary infused lamb, crunchy salads and lots and lots of lemon! As a long distance runner, Greek cuisine is a healthy lifestyle choice. Just not too much baklava and shortbread!

Serves 6

2 blocks of halloumi cheese, sliced into 1.5cm pieces
6 peaches, halved and stoned
2 red chillies, halved lengthways and seeded
150g baby salad leaves
2 small bulbs of fennel, finely sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
2tbls finely chopped mint
Light olive oil, for cooking

250ml Greek yoghurt
Juice of 1 lemon
2tbls finely chopped mint

1. Mix the dressing and and taste for seasoning. Add more lemon if desired. Set aside and allow the flavours to infuse.
2. In a pan or on the BBQ, lightly grill the peaches until just golden. If using a pan, use a little light olive oil to cook the peaches in. If cooking on a BBQ, lightly coat the peaches with olive oil before placing on the BBQ grill. Set aside.
3. Repeat with the chillies, pushing them down with tongs to ensure even cooking. Once the chillies start to blister and soften, remove and set aside. Allow to cool slightly before chopping into very thin slices.
4. Using more olive oil, cook the halloumi on both sides until golden brown. Remove and keep warm on a warm plate or in a moderate oven.
5. Gently toss together the fennel and baby salad leaves with a little dressing. Divide between six starter plates or arrange on one large salad platter.
6. Nestle the peaches on the bed of greens, add the halloumi cheese and scatter over the chillies and extra mint.
7. Serve immediately with extra dressing on the side.

Totally Delish!
