Ok as promised I am here with another light meal idea perfect for summer nights eating al fresco with the family or friends. I have been dreaming about creating a salad that combines tomato and strawberries for a while. The magic of the different shades of red, yellow, orange, purple and the green from the arugula and mint is well nothing short of breathing. Truth is, I could have stopped there but I didn’t.
This salad pictured above with just a drizzle of balsamic and olive oil would have been perfectly amazing but when one finds vegan halloumi cheese one gets to thinking. First thoughts were OMG I FOUND VEGAN HALLOUMI. Memories flooded back from a trip to Greece where we ate freshly fried, squeaky, salty and freshly lit (on fire) halloumi looking out over the Mediterranean Sea. I’ve missed that cheese since converting to vegan but the drought is over and couldn’t WAIT to try. Now I will admit, no vegan cheese on planet earth will ever replicate the real deal. It just won’t. I’ve come to terms, BUT I will take the plant based version any day if I can do my part to save the planet and the animals. It’s worth it, plus this stuff was delicious. I served this beauty with roasted fingerlings and asparagus with a side of green goddess (pesto) quinoa.
