Beetroot and Halloumi Salad with Pomegranate

BEETROOT AND HALLOUMI SALAD WITH POMEGRANATES

This is a great find and another BBC Good Food recipe.

The first time I made this, we forgot the beetroot!!  But it still tasted great.

Serves 2

 

Ingredients

  • 1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced

  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 2 oranges

  • 4 handfuls rocket leaves

  • 2 cooked beetroots, chopped

  • olive oil for frying

  • 80g thinly sliced halloumi, slices halved

  • 80g pomegranate seeds

  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds

  • handful mint leaves

  • few sprigs dill, chopped


     

AND THIS IS WHAT YOU DO....

  1. Put the sliced onion in a pan, add the vinegar and some olive oil and cook until soft, then set aside.
     

  2. Cut the peel and pith from the orange then segment over the onion bowl to make sure that you catch any juice. 
     

  3. Pile the rocket onto plates and dot over the beetroot and orange.
     

  4. Rub a drop of oil around a non-stick frying pan then fry the halloumi in the pan for about 30 seconds each side until golden.
     

  5. Stir the pomegranate into the onions and spoon this and all the dressing, over the rocket, then top with the halloumi and scatter with the pumpkin seeds, mint and dill.
