As we creep towards summer, our tastebuds start to crave the lightness and freshness of a bowl of salad, and you'd struggle to find any dish more refreshing than this. 

Smashed (quite literally) cucumber, with the saltiness of halloumi and a tahini dressing: it's simple, quick and jam-packed with flavour. 

Ingredients

  • 2
    Cucumbers
  • A sprinkle
    Sea salt
  • A sprinkle
    Dried chilli flakes
  • 1 block
    Halloumi
  • For the dressing

  • 1 jar
    Yoghurt
  • 1/2
    Lemon
  • A sprinkle
    Sea salt
  • A sprinkle
    Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp
    Tahini
  • 1 bunch
    Fresh mint
  • 1/2
    Lemon

Method

  • Begin by smashing your cucumbers! Take a rolling pin and bash it against the cucumbers until the flesh is nicely broken up. 

    Season with salt, then sprinkle with chilli flakes and squeeze over the juice of half a lemon.

    To make the dressing, pour the yoghurt into a bowl and add the juice of the remaining half of lemon, salt and pepper, and a teaspoon of tahini. Finely chop the fresh mint leaves and stir these through the yoghurt mixture until well combined. 

    Slice your halloumi and cook until lightly caramelise. 

    Plate the salad by plating the cucumbers and the halloumi, then drizzling with plenty of the yoghurt dressing. Finish with some lemon zest, some edible flowers, or some fresh mint leaves.
