I don’’t know about you, but I currently feel like I need light food that requires minimal effort when it comes to cooking. I also always feel that I need to make the most of the fruit on offer at this time of the year as it seems to pass so quickly.


I always like the idea of mixing sweet and salty and this dish has exactly that. The saltiness of the halloumi cheese, the sweetness of the figs and honey and a peppery kick from the rocket are a great combination and even when it’’s really hot and stuffy outside, this salad will leave you satisfied, but not overly full.

So, if you’’d like to know how to quickly put this together, read on.

  • 6 fresh figs

  • 100g rocket
