Roasted Carrot and Haloumi Salad

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 20 minutes   Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:

Haloumi can be quite tricky at the best of times but enter the airfryer and it suddenly became very simple and easy! We are loving the airfryer in the test kitchen and you will see more recipes show up here over time. I think an airfryer is the perfect camping accessory as long as you have power. Not that I am a camper any longer, those days are over thank goodness! (Five star all the way for me baby!)

This salad is pretty, delish and pretty delish! You could roast any other veg to go into this salad of your choosing.

Happy salad days.
