For Salad

  • 1 packet 8 oz halloumi cheese (block of halloumi cheese)
  • 4 cups baby spinach washed and dried
  • 2 medium beetroot cooked (boiled, grilled or roasted)
  • 1 small red onion sliced into half moon or circles


  • 3 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar


  • Place all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl or a jar and shake/stir like crazy. Set aside (for best flavor, let chill in the fridge for 30 minutes-1 hour).
  • Heat up a little cooking oil in a non stick or similar frying pan over medium heat. Add the halloumi slices (about ¼-½ inch thick) and cook them until golden brown on both sides (about 2-3 minutes). Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain the excess oil. You can keep the halloumi warm in a preheated oven before ready to serve. If you have a grill, grill the cheese there which will add an appetizing smoky layer to it.
  • Assemble the salad. In a large bowl, mix the spinach leaves, half of the dressing, and red onions in a bowl. Gently mix to combine. Arrange others ingredients on a serving platter and add beetroots (I like to add a pinch of salt to the beetroot before serving), halloumi and top with more dressing right before ready to serve. You can add a squeeze of citrus juice or a little lemon zest for a pleasing aroma and delicious flavors
