- 25g of Beet Shoots or Sprouts
- 1 Avocado

Anything with halloumi and you can count me in, but this in particular is such a dreamy salad. Creamy avocado, crispy halloumi and crunchy toasted seeds all drizzled with a lime vinaigrette. I not only love how this salad tastes, but it looks so bright and beautiful- a feast for the eyes and the tastebuds!
Slice the halloumi into thin strips. Add it to a pan on medium high heat and let it cook for a few minutes on each side until speckled golden.
While the halloumi is cooking, plate your greens and sprouts.
When the halloumi is done, set it aside and add the seeds to the pan. Let them cook for a few minutes until tasted and plump.
Slice the avocado and add it to the greens with the halloumi.
Combine all of the dressing ingredients and whisk well. Drizzle the dressing over everything and sprinkle with the toasted seeds.
