Grilled Pear and Halloumi Salad

You’ve come to the right place for a fruity and cheesy, salty and sweet warm salad. We’ve chosen Santa Maria pears, but this is not cast in stone. You can choose Anjou, or Bosc pears, or what have you. It doesn’t really matter as long as they are pears. Bake them with onion, grill some Halloumi and serve them together on a bed of valerian, also known as corn salad or lamb’s lettuce.

Ingredients

2 Santa Maria pears
2 small-sized red onions, wedged
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 ounces of halloumi cheese, sliced
1-ounce fresh valerian (corn salad)
fresh thyme
2 tablespoons of peanuts, roasted

Steps

  1. Add the pears to the work surface, cut off their stems and scoop out the seeds.
  2. Cut them into wedges and transfer them to a baking dish.
  3. Add the red onion wedges and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Roast for 15 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.
  5. Add the Halloumi cheese to a grill pan. Grill them for 4 minutes on both sides.
  6. Serve the pear wedges and onion wedges on a bed of corn salad. Garnish with thyme and roasted peanuts.
