Halloumi Peach Salad with Spicy Honey Dressing

Serves 2

Prep Time 15 minutes

Cook Time 15 minues


For the salad 

4 peaches, stoned and quartered  
300g halloumi cheese, sliced
1 tablespoon honey  
Small bunch basil, leaves picked  
150g giant couscous (or use regular), cooked according to packet instructions  
1 little gem lettuce, leaves separated  
½ red onion, finely sliced 

For the dressing 

2 teaspoons chilli flakes 
1 tablespoon honey 
3 tablespoons lemon juice 
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
Pinch salt 



This simple summer salad has lots of sweet and salty contrast thanks to the grilled cheese and soft peaches. If you don’t fancy the fruit warm or want to make the salad even easier to throw together, skip grilling the peach and just slice it before adding to the salad.

1. Make the dressing by combining the honey with 1 tablespoon of hot water and stirring until dissolved. Put in a jam jar with the rest of the ingredients, put the lid on and shake well to combine. Set aside. 

2. Light two gas burners on the Jupiter Outback BBQ and set the heat to medium-high.
