Haloumi is a great source of calcium and a good low-fat cheese to include in salads, I love that it’s ‘meaty’ and substantial, albeit a little squeaky texture. It’s especially wonderful when sliced and pan fried. For something different, I marinate a whole block of haloumi in lime juice, then pan fry it whole, before slicing and serving, it turns out seared and crispy on the outside with a smooth and creamy centre.

    Perfect salad, the season for fresh asparagus has just started here,in France so I am really enjoying this recipe. Only draw back is, haloumi is virtually impossible to find so I have used feta or goats cheese, not the same effect as haloumi but still good.
