Recipe: Roast Pumpkin & Haloumi Salad

This is one of my favourite salads. With most people going on health kicks in the new year i thought this would be the perfect time to share it with you. This salad is great to make for something bit more fancy but still really simple.

Serves 2

80g of Rocket
1/2 Butternut Pumpkin
30g Pinenuts
90g Haloumi
Balsamic Glaze
Olive Oil

1) Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. fan forced. Cut up the pumpkin into small cubes and place in a bowl. Cover in olive oil and place onto baking tray. Cook for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
2) In a small non stick frying pan place the pine nuts and toast over medium heat until golden. Set them aside.
3) Place rocket onto a plate or wooden board and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
4) When the pumpkin is almost cooked slice the haloumi. Heat non stick frying pan over medium heat, spray with oil and place haloumi into the pan. Turn over the pieces once golden and cook until both side are golden.
5) Add the roasted pumpkin to the rocket on the plate, add haloumi pieces and sprinkle the pine nuts.

TIP: This plate serves 2 or could be used as side dish to another meal for 4 serves. Use any dressing you like. You could even add some roast chicken or marinated lamb.

Love this recipe, however you can save some washing up if you drizzle the olive oil onto the pumpkin on the baking tray and toss!

This is my idea of perfection - I love a simple, warm salad. Nuts and haloumi make this killer good!
