Ingredients
  • 1 Bunch of Asparagus, approx 200g
  • 1 Bag Rocket
  • 1 tsp Olive oil
  • 1 pack of Halloumi
  • For the dressing
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • Smoked sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Begin by making the dressing, just whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice until they combine and make a sauce. Season with the smoked salt and pepper. If you don't have smoked sea salt regular sea salt is fine. Set aside.
  2. Trim the woody ends from the asparagus.
  3. Place all the asparagus onto a hot griddle, a grill will work fine if you have no griddle. Turning frequently cook the asparagus until a knife goes into the asparagus easily. The asparagus should have some bite, you don't want them to be soft.
  4. Meanwhile slice the block of Halloumi into 6 thick slices.
  5. Heat the tsp of olive oil in a frying pan, when hot place the Halloumi into the frying pan. Cook on each side until the Halloumi begins to brown. Remove from the heat and cut the Halloumi into cubes.
  6. Cut the asparagus into bite size pieces.
  7. Add the asparagus, rocket and Halloumi into a bowl and pour over the dressing, toss gently to combine and season a little more to taste.
  8. Serve immediately.
