Halloumi, Flowers and Strawberry Salad

Here is another salad, perfect for the warm summer evenings. The vegetable merchant at the local market prepares delicious bags of mixed green salad, in which he adds edible flowers. I love them. They give the salad a very pretty twist, don’t you find? I have also been growing delicate heartsease on my balcony, and they complemented the salad very well.

Halloumi is one of my summer favourite cheeses, to grill on the BBQ or in the oven. On the pics you can see that it looks a little bit burned: I was grilling it in the oven, checking it regularly. One minute it was still white, the next...oups, it was starting to burn! Next time, I’ll pay more attention.

We had a visit over the last weekend and were pretty busy, but I’ll tell you more about it next time.
