Recipe : Fried Halloumi with vinaigrette

Bring summer indoors with this zesty halloumi dish

 

Whilst the summer weather may not always be the best, one way to keep the summer vibes going is to keep cooking summer.  One of the staple ingredients in our house is halloumi.  Mr Foodie converted me to it many many years ago and we still love it.  This fried halloumi and vinaigrette dish can whipped up in minutes and has so many levels of flavours.  Capers, lime, mustard and coriander.  There is enough here for a light lunch for two or starters for four.
