Ingredients
  • Finely grated zest of half unwaxed lemon
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 hearts of Romaine Lettuce, shredded
  • 250g vine-ripened cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and sliced

Method
  • Pre-heat the grill. Whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice and olive oil, and season with pepper.

  • Grill the pitta breads on both sides until lightly toasted. Tear into small pieces. Add to the salad with the hot halloumi and toss together again.

  • Put the lettuce, tomatoes, spring onions, cucumber, parsley and chickpeas in a large bowl. Add the lemon dressing and toss everything together gently.

  • Grill the halloumi slices on both sides until they're tinged brown. Roughly chop.
