Halloumi, Mint & Pomegranate Salad

Halloumi, Mint & Pomegranate Salad

A refreshing and vibrant salad. Halloumi has a rubbery salty consistency when heated and browned in a dry frying pan it turns it into what I think of as vegetarian bacon. The combination of rocket, mint leaves, and pomegranate seeds give you a peppery refreshing salad with bursts of fruitiness.
