Equipment

  • nonstick skillet

Ingredients

For the salad:

  • 8 oz spring mix (equivalent of one small box)
  • 8 oz halloumi cheese cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
  • 1 cup red seedless grapes halved
  • 1 avocado quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint minced
  • 1/2 cup raw pecans roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp raw hemp seeds for garnish
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil

For the dressing

  • 1 navel orange fully juiced
  • 1 tsp orange zest (use zest from the juiced orange)
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Toss the spring mix, grapes, mint, avocado, and pecans together in a large bowl.
  • Make the salad dressing by adding the fresh orange juice, honey, water, olive oil, and pepper to a small bowl. Whisk very thoroughly until dressing is well combined.
  • Heat nonstick skillet and the 1/2 tsp. olive oil over medium high heat until the oil is shimmering. Add halloumi slices evenly to the skillet. When the halloumi starts to sizzle, use tongs or a spatula to gently lift the slices occassionally to prevent sticking. Cook on one side for 3-5 minutes or until it is golden brown.
  • Flip and continue cooking halloumi on the opposite side for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Place the pan fried halloumi slices on top of the salad. Drizzle dressing evenly over entire salad and garnish with the raw hemp seeds. Enjoy!
