Black bean and halloumi salad with blood orange dressing

This salad was just tonight's quick dinner, which I had planned in my head on my way home from work based on the available ingredients. The slightly special feature in this dish was the blood orange dressing with its citrussy zing. The black beans and halloumi were the filling agents and otherwise I kept the salad simple.

These are the ingredients for this salad that I will also be enjoying tomorrow as lunch:


1 can black beans
3 mini gem lettuce
150 g tomatoes
250 g halloumi
Vegetable oil for frying


1 blood orange
Olive oil to taste
Balsamic vinegar to taste
Salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste


Juice the blood orange and just add the other ingredients slowly to the dressing and keep tasting until it's good.

Cut the halloumi into cubes and fry them in vegetable oil until golden brown. Add them warm on the top of the salad.

Cut the gem lettuce into thin slices and chop the tomatoes.

Combine all ingredients and enjoy!

I got two dinners and two lunches from these ingredients.

Have a good Friday!
