This was a recipe I tore out of BBC Good Food a while back but only recently discovered due to the big recipe filing nightmare task I am currently undertaking. I thought as I am on a healthy eating kick that it would be nice to try this salad. I’m not sure if it’s diet-friendly or not but as I am not on a diet that doesn’t really matter. The mere presence of a variety colourful vegetables make it a healthier dinner for me!
I didn’t make this for Mr M as I thought he wouldn’t like it. He’s not a fan of tomatoes for starters, nor houmous and I thought halloumi would be way out of his comfort zone. I wasn’t wrong, it was out of his comfort zone but he did try a bit of mine and actually liked it and said he wouldn’t object to have it for his dinner one day. Result!
I loved this. I thought it was really tasty and liked the crunch of the salad and the warm halloumi. I also really liked dipping the pitta crisps into the houmous and will definitely make them in the future when I want a bit of a dipping snack. A really yummy, refreshing and satisfying dinner – this is a keeper!
The recipe serves two.
Halloumi Salad with Houmous Dressing & Pitta Crisps
To make this a bit healthier I used low-fat versions of halloumi, houmous and yoghurt. It seemed a bit heavy on the fat otherwise.
