Our friends at My Food Bag have created a simple and delicious recipe for our Food Snob Halloumi. A beautiful Mediterranean salad featuring our halloumi, smoked almonds and tamarillo. 



150g green beans
1 pack barley
1 pack of Food Snob Halloumi
1/4 red onion
Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
1 pack cherry tomatoes
1 radish
1 pack smoked roasted almonds
Tamarillo vinaigrette
Tamarillo relish
1 bunch basil


Preheat oven to 230°C. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil. Cut beans in half. Cook barley in pot of boiling water for about 18 minutes. Add beans and cook a further 2 minutes until bright green and barley is tender. Drain well.

Pat halloumi dry and dice into 2cm chunks. Cut onion into wedges. Toss halloumi and onion in a bowl with lemon zest and juice and a drizzle of oil. Season with pepper and place on a lined oven tray

Roast halloumi and onion for about 12 minutes, until golden.

Halve cherry tomatoes and thinly slice radish. Once barley and beans have cooked, toss together with remaining salad ingredients in a salad bowl and season to taste.
