Mediterranean Halloumi Salad and Herb Dressing

I love dried herbs they add flavour to anything. My favourites are oregano, thyme and rosemary. When I was in Greece they served a salad dressing like this over their feta Greek salad. I used halloumi in mine but I tried to recreate the dressing and it was yummy.

Ingredients (serves 2)

For the Salad
  • 250g block of halloumi, sliced
  • Small bunch watercress
  • 6 sun dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 6 olives, halved
For the Dressing
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1/2 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tbsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


  1. Heat a spray of oil in a frying pan. Cook the halloumi for 2 minutes on each side.
  2. Make the dressing by adding all the ingredients to a jar or bowl shake or whisk to combine.
  3. Assemble the salad by adding the watercress between 2 bowls. Top with the sun dried tomatoes, olives and halloumi. Pour over the dressing. 😊
