Halloumi Cheese & Chorizo Salad

Halloumi Cheese & Chorizo Salad

This is a filling and delicious salad that uses Greek halloumi cheese (which doesn't melt even when baked).This unusual cheese is really addictive!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Halloumi cheese
1 pack
as desired
as desired
Fresh mushrooms
as desired
as desired
1 clove
☆ Whole grain mustard
1.5 tablespoons
☆ Honey
1 tablespoon
☆ White wine vinegar
1 tablespoon
☆ Lemon juice
a small amount
☆ Dried basil (or dried parsley etc.)
a small amount


1. Chop up the vegetables and arrange them on a plate.
2. This is the halloumi cheese that I used this time.
3. Cut up the cheese, chorizo, and garlic. The cheese is easier to cook if it isn't sliced too thinly. Maybe around 8 mm is good.
4. Sauté the garlic in a frying pan with some olive oil. When the garlic starts to sizzle, add in the chorizo. When the chorizo has cooked too, add it to the plate with the salad.
5. Leave the oil from the chorizo in the pan and cook the cheese on both sides until browned. Turn the slices of cheese over one at a time and handle them gently.
6. While the cheese is cooking, prepare the dressing. Mix together all of the ☆ ingredients.
7. When the cheese has cooked, add it to the top of the salad, pour the dressing over the top and serve while hot.

Story Behind this Recipe

Since I came to Australia and I first tried halloumi cheese, I've become addicted to its crunchy and dense texture. It's now my go-to cheese.
I wanted to make a salad as a main meal so I added this cheese and chorizo to give it a bit more volume. They taste really good together!
