This smashed cucumber and sesame salad is made of cucumber, halloumi and a spicy dressing for a midday pick-me-up. The main part of the salad doesn’t take long at all; you’ll just fry your halloumi, break your cucumber up into pieces, and chop your spring onions. For your dressing, tahini, soy sauce and chilli oil come together for a fiery accompaniment to the dish. This super affordable salad is great for lunch at home, or as a spicy addition to a barbecue spread as it serves four with no fuss. Looking for more halloumi recipes? Look no further.
