Another Boy Friendly Salad
June 11, 2010
This is another salad that has gone down well with the Boy. It’s very simple and the only thing that requires time is the sweet potato, everything takes minutes.
For 2 people (large salad) or 3 (a starter size)
1 large sweet potato
1 block halloumi
10 spears asparagus
1. Cut into chunks and roast the sweet potato for about 30 minutes, with some sea salt, black pepper, paprika and dried chilli sprinkled
2. When almost done, steam the asparagus for 3 minutes, and fry/grill the halloumi for as long as it takes to cook 2-3 minutes each side)
3. Mix the salad leaves (and any extras you want to add – like cherry tomatoes) in a large bowl with some olive oil, cut the asparagus into bite size pieces, add the sweet potato and arrange in a bowl or on a plate.
4. Pile the halloumi on top and sprinkle the pomegranate seeds, finally drizzle some balsamic reduction or vinegar over the top
This was so good that when I was visiting my uni friends who were very hungry and asked me to pick them some food up on my way over, I said I would make them something … and they loved it!
I had to improvise as they had no balsamic but some lime juice, oil and pepper worked very well.
Got the thumbs up from them too!
