Salads

Warm ‘tiger’ salad

I made this salad the other day from grilled summer veggies and Halloumi cheese with a Tzatziki-style dressing. It makes a delicious light meal or lunch served with some fresh bread.

I stated by preparing an assortment of veggies, courgettes / zucchini sliced thinly lengthways, aubergine / eggplant also sliced quite thinly, a red onion cut into segments and some mushrooms, and made the dressing from a crushed garlic clove about a tbsp of olive oil, 4 or 5 tbsp of plain yoghurt, some salt and pepper (to taste) a little squeeze of lime juice and some fresh mint and dill leaves. I then tossed the veg in some olive oil that had a couple of cloves of crushed garlic in it and grilled them.I also steamed some purple beans from the garden, which unfortunately turn green when cooked, and grilled the Halloumi. I then put the veggies on a serving plate, with the Halloumi on top and drizzled over the dressing. Yummy!
