I’m really not much of a salad person. For me to eat salad it needs to involve a lot more than just salad ingredients. And preferably at least one carb. This halloumi, sweet potato and bulgur wheat salad is pretty much my perfect salad.

What do you guys like in your salads? I think cheese is almost as essential as carbs. Feta, goats cheese, a shaving of parmesan. Halloumi works amazingly in this salad. Apart from being in my top five cheeses (legit though, it would be way too hard to actually make that list), the salty flavour of the halloumi with the slightly charred sweet potato is like heaven.

We had a light, lemony chilli dressing over the whole thing. Plus there’s olives.

I really love olives.

    So many lovely flavours in one dish. I do very much love halloumi, and is a nice change from feta for salads. The additon of tasty olives is perfect.

    You’re so right, a great salad has to have a bit of carb, and this one looks hearty enough to make a meal out of, I love the unusual ingredients in this one, and I’ve actually never had halloumi, where have I been??
