Grilled Halloumi Wraps with Tomato, Avocado and Coriander Salsa


Halloumi is THE cheese for beefing out a wrap or salad; it's meaty, salty and very different to your average cheese. I love the fact you can grill it for a fabulous outer crisp and the soft, squeaky interior is just heaven! It is a salty cheese so it works really well with fresh ingredients, I had some salad in the fridge which needed using up so decided to make a lovely tomato salsa. I made my own wholemeal wraps, maybe it's just me but I find it really satisfying to do this, and it's really easy. They're imperfect but they do the job they were made for and I love knowing that I made them out of three ingredients. If you don't have time or aren't confident with a rolling pin, pick up some wholemeal wraps from the supermarket. I brought the dish together with a drizzle of chilli oil because I love the heat but you could use some really good quality olive oil as an alternative. It is a little messy but I think that's what I like about it!

Serves 2

Ingredients

200g halloumi, sliced into 6 pieces

2 large vine tomatoes, chopped into squares

1 spring onion, chopped

Handful of coriander, chopped

Half an avocado

Half a lime

Olive oil

Chilli oil (optional)

For the tacos

125g wholemeal flour

1/2 tbsp olive oil

40ml cold water

Salt

Extra flour for dusting

Instructions

Start by making the salsa, place the chopped tomato, spring onion and coriander in a bowl and stir. Mash the avocado on a chopping board and then add to the bowl with a glug of olive oil and a squeeze of lime. Mix this until the tomatoes are completely coated in the avocado dressing and then put to one side.

To make the wraps, place the flour and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Gradually add the water and the olive oil, mixing together until you have a rough dough to play with. Dust a clean, dry surface with flour and knead the dough for a few minutes until it is smooth. Roll the dough into a sausage and then chop into 2 sections. Roll the sections into balls and dust a surface with flour. Roll the dough balls into large thin circles, roughly to the thickness of an envelop. Preheat a large non-stick pan over a high heat, then cook the wraps one by one, they won't take much more than 1-2 minutes, so keep turning until they start to colour. Transfer the cooked wraps into tin foil to keep warm.

Meanwhile, heat a grill or frying pan over a high heat, when the pan is hot add the halloumi. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, keep checking and turning until the halloumi is lovely and brown on the the outside and soft on the inside.

To assemble place a wrap on each plate and divide the salsa evenly, throw on the halloumi and drizzle some chilli oil. Wrap it up and enjoy!
