This will be our third recipe in a row that has a winter squash featured front and centre. Tis the season.
From Roasted Squash, Lentil and Greens Salad to Pumpkin and Lentil Soup to this stunner of a salad. Don’t ask me to choose a favourite – it would be like asking me to choose my favourite child. But if we are being honest, it’s this Maple Roasted Squash and Seared Halloumi Cheese Salad that I’ve been craving again and again.
The squash is delicious and all, but it’s really the seared halloumi cheese that steals the show. Because cheese. And not just any old cheese – hot, fried till just crispy and melty cheese. If you haven’t had halloumi cheese before, be prepared for your life to change. Yes, it’s that good.
I mean, I could go on and on and tell you how this salad is loaded with all sorts of other good stuff like avocado, pumpkin seeds, dried apricots, and chopped tomatoes. I could also tell you how it makes for the perfect deconstructed family friendly supper.
But really, all I need to say is seared halloumi cheese. You’re welcome.
