First, make the balsamic fig dressing. Add the fig preserve, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, water and lemon juice to a small jar, and shake well to combine. Alternatively, add the ingredients to a small bowl, and mix well with a fork.
Cook the halloumi in a frying pan or griddle pan for a few minutes each side, until golden brown - there are more detailed instructions here if you need them.
Add a good handful of mixed salad leaves to two large bowls, and top with the grilled halloumi, fresh figs, and chopped pistachios. Drizzle over the balsamic fig dressing, and serve immediately.
