Chargrilled Sourdough, Tomato and Haloumi Salad

A Luscious and Healthy Salad, Full of Goodness

We are celebrating the season of (Northern Hemisphere) Spring as well as Daffodil Day in the U.S.A, supporting cancer awareness. In Australia we celebrate Daffodil Day  in October, our Spring.

It’s a time of hope, when we join together to help fight cancer by raising funds and increasing awareness. It’s a time to educate everyone across each country, to ensure that each and every person affected has the best care and support possible, and then to beat this thing once and for all.
We can all support this endeavour wherever we live, whatever we do and whichever season we are in!

At home, we try to nourish ourselves and our families with wonderful food. We  choose organic vegetables rich in colour and antioxidants, the best extra virgin olive oil we can find, and ingredients from sources we trust. And then simply put it all together with a good dose of love, the essential ingredient.

When I think of Spring, I think of bright, vibrant food that awakens the palate and the soul. This salad is a mouthwatering feast for all senses, full of colour, texture and immense flavour.

We’ve made a short video to go with this recipe – one minute only!

    Gorgeous good-to-eat/good-for-us dish. We have an unfortunate cultural misconception here in the USA that it’s either one or the other — there’s great food we love to eat, and nutritious/healthy food that we ‘should’ consume ‘or ELSE’! Your photos and recipe brush that nonsense aside and stir up an “I want that!” passion that must be satisfied. Some foodie I am — not familiar with haloumi cheese. That will change shortly, thanks to you.

    What a beautiful salad! I love the idea of crispy melted cheese and croutons.
