Give a salad a boost by adding spices and fruit like chef and food stylist Esther Clarkin her Za’atar-spiced Halloumi, Fig and Red Onion Salad. Sweet figs and salty, savoury halloumi are a natural match, while za’atar –a Middle Eastern spice blend –adds a nutty, zingy flavour that turns a quick and easy dish something extra special.
