Ingredients

  • 250g bulgur wheat
  • 250g halloumi
  • Juice of ½ lemon, plus lemon wedges, to serve
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cucumber, halved lengthways
  • and finely sliced
  • 250g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 200g baby spinach
  • Handful fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely sliced
  • 400g can chickpeas, drained

For the harissa dressing

  • 1 tsp harissa paste
  • 150ml natural yogurt

Method

  • Place the bulgur wheat in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Cook for 20 minutes, until tender and fluffy. Drain and cool.
  • Thinly slice the halloumi and pat dry with kitchen paper. Fry gently in a dry, non-stick frying pan for 2 minutes, until golden and crispy on both sides, turning carefully. Set aside on a plate, then drizzle with the lemon juice and half the oil.
  • Toss the cucumber, tomatoes, spinach, mint, onion and chickpeas into the bulgur wheat. Drizzle with the remaining oil and toss again. Season well and divide between plates, with the halloumi.
  • Mix the harissa into the yogurt and spoon into small serving saucers. Put 1 on each plate, with some lemon wedges to squeeze over the salad.
