  • 1 lettuce - I used a curly leaf lettuce leaves separated
  • a bunch of watercress (80 g) leaves picked
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 block of halloumi cheese diced

For the dressing

  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons rapeseed or olive oil


  • Arrange the lettuce leaves and watercress on a large plate or platter. Sprinkle the diced avocado on top.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat and add the halloumi pieces. Fry until golden brown. Add to the salad and finish by drizzling over the dressing. Eat immediately.

For the dressing

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a frying pan. Add the red onion along with a pinch of salt and the smoked paprika. Cook over a medium heat until softened, about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer to a bowl and add the lime juice, sesame oil, the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and a pinch of salt to taste. Mix well.
