Summer is on its way so time for light, healthy meals. No more excuses for comfort food but I am not making any promises. I think the fact that this Roasted Broccoli Halloumi Salad is warm still makes it a little comforting. It has a little bit of everything; some crunch, a hint of chilli, some zest and the squeaky halloumi cheese. This is one of those salads that I make often.

Even if you are a salad hater you will love this Roasted Broccoli Halloumi Salad. I am not exactly a salad hater but I am not exactly a salad lover either, I am somewhere in between. But I do love this salad or I wouldn’t be making it at all. My family loves it too.

I love a creamy dressing with my salads, it just makes it so much more edible. The dressing with the sour cream and mayonnaise is so simple and adds a lovely flavour to the salad. Just mix it in before serving. My hubby was in absolute heaven with this salad. He could live on salads, not me. Don’t get me wrong, I will eat a salad but in moderation….haha! You would think that a salad would kill me. I did steam my broccoli for a short while to speed up the process but you can cook it in the oven whilst raw. It will take a little longer but the taste will be all the same.
