Bacon Wrapped Halloumi Cheese over microgreen and pea salad
Serves: 4
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 TBS red wine vinegar
  • frozen or fresh peas
  • handful of scallions
  • pea shoots or microgreens
  • 1 package bacon (keep what not used for breakfast)
  • 1 packages of Halloumi cheese
  1. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Place the frozen peas in a colander and pour the boiling water over. Let drain. Rinse and trim the spring onions and thinly slice the white and green parts. Rinse the micro greens and pat dry.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the Dijon mustard and red wine vinegar. Add 1½ TBS olive oil and whisk to combine, seasoning with salt and pepper. Add the peas and sliced spring onions and toss to combine.
  3. Cut the Halloumi into 8 slices. Gently stretch the bacon to make it a bit thinner. Wrap a slice of bacon around each slice of cheese. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Fry the bacon-wrapped Halloumi, turning several times until the cheese is beginning to brown and the bacon is crisp. Remove to a paper towel lined plate.
  4. Add the micro greens to the pea salad and toss gently. To serve, divide the salad between the serving plates and top with the bacon-wrapped Halloumi cheese.
