Halloumi and Avocado Creamed Salad
I have made another Halloumi cheese salad with a few amendments. I am a great fan of cheese in salads such as Halloumi, feta and mozzarella. For the Halloumi cheese recipe I made in back in October click here: https://www.creativecookblog.com/post/halloumi-cheese-salad
Back to this post, I fried the Halloumi cheese until golden brown yet still soft. Then I included a colourful array of sweet cherry plum tomatoes, crunchy romaine lettuce leaves and sweetcorn. In addition, I have velvety spinach leaves and salty olives.
Finally, I used creamed avocado as opposed to avocado cut into chunks. This almost acts like a dressing and incorporates and binds all of the seasoning, herbs and the vegetables used in the salad. It tastes absolutely delicious. This salad is so bright and vibrant just like the summer that is due to come.
