This haloumi recipe is a super fast, easy to make, nutritious snack or light lunch. I always have a packet of haloumi in the fridge for a last minute lunch or a quick snack. I sometimes make this for my kids for an after school snack too. It’s so delicious and pretty, you can even make this as a starter when entertaining. Talk about versatile!
Why is it healthy?
Because the haloumi and nuts are a source of protein and the apple is a rich source of vitamins, phytonutrients and fibre.
1 pack of haloumi. Halve the block (to make it thinner) and also lengthways, so you have four pieces
1 red or green apple, julienned into thin strips
10-20 raw hazelnuts
Juice of one lemon (you can also add zest for an immune boost)
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Mint leaves, scattered over the dish are really delicious.
Figs, when in season are a delicious addition to this.
The acidity of the lemon, sweetness of the apple and saltiness of the haloumi is a heavenly flavour combination. It’s important however to eat the haloumi straight off the press whilst it is hot and crunchy on the outside and soft inside. As it cools, haloumi has a tendency to go rubbery – so eat it quickly!
This takes little longer than cutting up an apple. Give it a go, it’s delicious and sure to become a favourite.
