A Luscious Salad, Full of Goodness

The Monday Morning Cooking Club gals always try our best to nourish us and our families with wonderful food. For salads we choose vegetables and leaves rich in colour and antioxidants, the best local extra virgin olive oil, and ingredients from sources we trust. And then simply put it all together with a good dose of love, the essential ingredient.

We love vibrant food that awakens the palate and the soul and this salad is a mouthwatering feast for all senses, full of colour, texture and immense flavour.

  1. Slice the sourdough into thick slices. Brush each side generously with the olive oil and cook on a hot grill pan until well charred. Set aside.
  2. Thickly slice the tomatoes and halve the baby tomatoes.
  3. Halve and finely slice the red onion.
  4. 20 minutes before serving: Tear the bread into large chunks and toss with the tomatoes, onion, olives, capers and parsley. Mix together the dressing ingredients and pour over the salad. Toss to combine.
  5. Thickly slice the haloumi and press with paper towel to remove any extra moisture.
  6. When you are ready to serve the salad, heat a frypan to hot. Quickly sear the haloumi slices on both sides until golden, a couple of minutes. Place on top of the salad and serve immediately.

    Grilled halloumi is really one of my favorite things on earth; that salad looks great!

    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.

  4. Karen Whitcroft

    I love the first two cook books and can’t wait to cook everything in the third.

The lamington is a traditional Australian cake made of a square of white cake coated in a light chocolate icing and then rolled in coconut. The last weekend in January is a long one here in Australia and we love nothing more than a public holiday and a long weekend. Australia Day is generally a day for BBQs and swimming, beach-going and drinking beer, and eating sausage rolls and lamingtons. As usual, for us, it’s always about the food.
