Chargrilled Halloumi, nectarine & prosciutto salad

Chargrilled Halloumi, nectarine & prosciutto salad

No cheese is tastier chargrilled than Halloumi and the sweet nectarine goes perfectly with the salty prosciutto

Serves: 4
Prep: 15 mins
Cooking: About 10 mins

What you need:

  • 6 slices prosciutto
  • 250g/9oz Halloumi cheese, sliced
  • 1 (100g) bag rocket leaves
  • 3 tbsp roughly chopped fresh mint
  • seeds from 1 ripe pomegranate
  • 4 ripe nectarines, cut into segments

For the dressing:

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar

 

What you do:

  1. Firstly, heat up a chargrill pan and when it's hot add the slices of prosciutto a few at a time, and cook for 1-2mins on each side until they have become crisp and golden. Leave to cool down and crisp up.
  2. Next, brush the halloumi cheese with a little olive oil and add to the griddle, cook for 1-2mins on each side until they have beautiful, dark chargrill marks on the surface of the cheese. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add the rocket, mint, pomegranate seeds and nectarines to the large bowl before giving it a toss with the dressing. Plate the salad up, making sure that everyone has the same amount of everything, before crunching up the prosciutto liberally over the top. Taste a little before seasoning since the cheese and ham are already high in salt and the wild rocket will furnish you with a solid peppery kick.
