Halloumi, Courgette Ribbons & Avocado Salad





This is one of those ad-hoc recipes that I created when I looked in my fridge one day and simply pulled out all these ingredients and threw them together. And what a happy discovery it was! I love grilled halloumi; there truly is something special about its salty, creamy flavour and chewy texture which I just can’t get enough of.



  1. Peel or spiralize the courgettes into ribbons or strips then toss them on a serving platter with the dressing. I like to massage the dressing into them.
  2. Add the halloumi to the pan and let fry on either side for 1 ½ – 2 minutes until golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile add the tomatoes, roughly chopped fresh herbs and avocado to the salad, give everything a toss then top with the fried halloumi and serve immediately.


  • 2 large courgettes
  • 1 x 250g pack of halloumi, sliced into 8
  • 4 handfuls of watercress or other salad leaves
  • 2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes or 2 large tomatoes diced
  • 2 large handfuls of fresh herbs (parsley and mint)
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp of raw honey or maple syrup
  • Pinch of chilli flakes, to taste
  • Sea salt and black pepper
