Alex Hollywood makes fig and halloumi sunshine salad on today’s episode of Lorraine.
Alex says: “I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of a better combination than beautiful fresh figs and gorgeous chewy halloumi cheese. Both of these ingredients remind me of when I lived in Cyprus and I used to pull figs straight from the tree.”
The ingredients are: 6-8 figs, quartered, 1/2 pack halloumi cheese, Handful fresh coriander, chopped, 10g capers, 1 chicory, pulled apart ans washed, 3-4 tomatoes, quartered and handful fresh chopped mint leaves.
For the dressing: 1 lemon, 3 tbsp olive oil, 2 tsp honey, 1 tsp Dijon mustard and salt and pepper, to season.
To prepare the dish, put the figs, coriander, capers, chicory leaves, tomatoes and mint leaves in a bowl.
In a jam jar, combine the dressing ingredients, place lid on and shake well to emulsify the vinaigrette. Season to taste.
In a frying pan, dry fry slices of halloumi until golden brown on each side.
Place on top of the salad and drizzle dressing over top.
