Sluttishly Vegetarian: Warm Grilled Vegetable Salad with Halloumi and a Mint and Lemon Dressing

This is a lovely, punchy salad, full of strong, ripe, summer flavours. I bought all my vegetables from my local market, Surrey St in Croydon, which worked out incredibly economical. I managed to buy a whole bowl of peppers and another of courgettes for £1! I then strolled along a bit to a fantastic little Vietnamese stall which sold huge bunches of herbs for 50p. If you do one thing this week, search out your local fruit and veg market and GO THERE!

Serves 2

You’ll need:

  • 1 courgette
  • 2 red onions
  • 2 peppers
  • half a block of halloumi
  • 1 lemon
  • olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • a bunch of mint
  • a pinch of sugar
  • salt and pepper

Make it!

  • Roast your peppers in a hot oven until black and charred. Put hot peppers in a plastic bag or tub, seal and leave to cool.
  • Cut your other veg into half a centimetre slices, toss in oil and salt and pepper.
  • Grill the veg, you might need to do this in batches.
  • Mix the dressing; chop the mint, add olive oil, the juice and zest of a lemon, a pinch of sugar, a clove of garlic (crushed) and some salt and pepper. You might need to taste as you go, generally you need 2 to 1 oil to acid.
  • Take the cooled peppers out of the bag/tub and peel the skin and cut into chunky pieces.
  • Add to rest of the grilled veg. Toss veg in dressing. Plate up.
  • Grill the halloumi slices and place on top of the salad. Sprinkle over a little chopped mint to make it look pretty and eat it up! You could serve this with some flat breads or eat it on its own
