I am a huge fan of Halloumi Cheese. I love how it is packed with flavour and the fact it has a high melting point which means it is often a favourite of mine when it comes to barbecue season or when I fancy a salad but want a bit of warmth in it. Today I have my friends over for lunch and we all are trying to be healthy so thought I would throw together one of my old time favourites.

Half a pack/full pack rocket, watercress or spinach leaves (Aldi)
