Spinach & Bacon Haloumi Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Sara 76

Haloumi is a firm, salty Greek cheese. You can use salami or ham instead of bacon, if you like. This salad is great served with grilled Turkish Pide, or beef sausages. From the January 2009 issue of "recipes +" magazine.

This recipe is absolutely delicious! Reasonably healthy while still a little indulgent. Will most definitly be making it again. We had it as a main meal between 2 and I added a handfull of fresh Vittoria tomatoes and doubled up on the spinich, olive oil and lemon juice. We ate the salad accompanied with a fresh Lebonese flat bread which soaked up the juices and flavour very nicely. 5 stars :)
