Steps to prepare the Barbecued haloumi and vegetable salad

  1. Begin by prepping your ingredients. Slice, dice, and halve where needed.
  2. Coat veggies and haloumi with olive oil, seasoning them with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat your grill to get that sizzling effect. Place the veggies and haloumi on the grill, ensuring they get those char marks, approximately 10-15 minutes.
  4. While the grill works its magic, mix your cherry tomatoes and aromatic basil in a bowl.
  5. Once the barbecued items are slightly cooled but still warm, combine them with the tomatoes and basil.
  6. Serve up the salad warm, perhaps with a squirt of lemon juice for zing.

Chef’s Tips
