Haloumi and Herby Watermelon Salad

Serves 6 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 5 minutes   Rated:

I love being a brand ambassador for European Foods...I get to play with all sorts of great ingredients, which is half the battle when it comes to taste I think. If you are starting off with average, it's pretty hard to get past that. So get the right ingredients from the start and see how much better everything tastes!

So when they asked me for another recipe for the award winning Eureka Haloumi, what could I do but jump at the chance. 'How can you go wrong with fried cheese?' I cried. You just can't!

So here is a super fresh, sooooo easy salad that will wow everyone, with the yin yang, sweet, salty and plenty of sex appeal. Enjoy.

  • 1 Kilo red watermelon, sliced
  • 2 Handfuls rocket or salad leaves of choice
  • Handfuls Coriander leaves
  • Handfuls mint leaves
  • 1-2 ripe avocado diced
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, sliced
  • 300 Grams Eureka Haloumi (available in most IGA's)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) to taste BUY
  • balsamic vinegar or a few balsamic pearls



Slice the watermelon, (i suggest bite sized pieces or wedges) Arrange on top of rocket in a serving bowl.


Arrange the herbs over and all remaining ingredients except Haloumi.


Cook the Haloumi in a medium hot frying pan with a little EVOO until golden and toasty on both sides.


Add to the salad and then a drizzle more EVOO if desired and the balsamic pearls. (These are available from European Foods in Perth, but look for them in continental or specialty grocery stores.)
