Fig and halloumi salad with balsamic fig dressing

Prep Time10 mins
Servings: 2 people
Author: Becca Heyes


  • 1 tbsp fig preserve
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp warm water
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 thick slices halloumi
  • 2 large handfuls mixed salad leaves
  • 4 fresh figs, halved
  • 2 tbsp pistachio nuts, roughly chopped


  • 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.
