Watermelon Peach Halloumi Salad

Hey, everyone! Can you believe there’s only one month of this summer left? I cannot! On the other hand, we are heading to my favorite part of this season. I do love September with its comfortable and warm weather and an abundance of seasonal produce. Sadly, some good things such as cherries or apricots are gone (Technically, you can still buy them in our area, but the price is outrageously high). On the other hand, there are so many things to enjoy. Plums and other stone fruit, melons, and corns to name a few.

Actually, do you feel that autumn will be here in a month? It’s not that obvious yet, but the air has significantly cooled down which is an amazing thing as I am sick and tired of complaining to you about the weather. Also, wild rosehip and Rowan berries are getting reddish. That’s about it.

Oh, there is one more thing. You can see apples and pumpkins already on the Internet. No judgment. But you know me – that’s not going to happen on my blog until the end of September. Indeed, I am done photographing summer food as I have enough recipes for the next 3 weeks or so. So, I am just going to embrace the remaining summer as much as possible. I won’t lie that I haven’t thought of fall recipes yet. In fact, I am already thinking about using apples and pumpkins, but the actual process won’t start for a while.

And what’s on the menu in September? Plums, corn, ice cream, and watermelons. Talking of watermelons, I am excited to present you this Watermelon Peach Halloumi Salad. I hope you are familiar with sweet and savory watermelon combos, and I certainly hope you try this version. The combination of watermelon and peaches is incredibly juicy and refreshing. I also added some prosciutto (Indeed, some Jamón too) and grilled halloumi to make it more substantial. Fresh mint and a drizzle of lime make it even more refreshing.

I mean, I gotta try this Watermelon Peach Halloumi Salad! You can also try this Watermelon Prosciutto Feta Salad and this Melon Prosciutto Blue Cheese Salad.

Cheers for now.

(You can find me in my room with a watermelon in one hand and ice cream in another).

Watermelon Peach Halloumi salad

Yield: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 - 1,5 cups of arugula
  • 2 cups of small watermelon segments
  • 2 medium peaches, pitted and sliced
  • 150 gr. Halloumi
  • Few slices of prosciutto or Jamon
  • Fresh mint leaves (I used orange and chocolate mint)
  • a little drizzle of lime

Instructions

  1. Slice the halloumi (1-1,5 cm thick). Place in a sieve and let stay 10 minutes to dry out. Preheat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Don't add any oil. Place the halloumi and cook about 2 minutes or until the bottom is nicely browned. Flip over and brown from another side. Off heat.
  2. For the salad, divide the arugula, watermelon, peaches, prosciutto, and mint between plates and drizzle with the lime juice. Tip with the warm halloumi and serve at once.
  3. Enjoy!

9 Thoughts on “Watermelon Peach Halloumi Salad

  1. I love summer but fall is definitely my favourite season. While it is still warm here during the day, it is cooling off quicker in the evenings. And you can definitely smell fall in the air! I have halloumi in my fridge which I keep meaning to use. This salad is providing me with lots of motivation to break it out! Looks like a lovely salad Ben!

  2. This is a fabulous salad Ben! I’m a huge fan of using fruit in savory dishes and this is an excellent combination. I echo your thoughts too on enjoying the cooler temps that September brings and holding off on creating apple and pumpkin recipes a little longer. Enjoy late summer!

  3. Yum! This is a little smorgasbord on a plate! Watermelon, peaches, Halloumi, prosciutto … what a nice combination!

  4. The air has definitely cooled down! I actually love late August/September the most. Warm days and cooler nights. I’m with you on the pumpkin and apples – I’m not ready for it yet! I’m happy to see you’re still incorporating a summer favourite – WATERMELON!! Cheers, Ben!

  5. We’ve definitely had a cooling down of the air here too Ben. And sadly our Scottish strawberries and raspberries are slowly coming to an end. But soon there will be lot’s of leeks. For tasty leek and potato soup. And I’m a big soup fan. So it’s not all bad news. But I also like my salads too, and there’s still time to enjoy them. Like this watermelon peach halloumi salad. Yum. I love halloumi, and adding mint to it, that’s new to me! But I bet it tastes amazing!

  6. Ben, this salad looks so good. I love halloumi, but have for some reason never toasted it like this before! I can’t wait to try it. And your addition of mint has me swooning! Love this recipe!

  7. You’re including some of my favorite ingredients here. Watermelon and peaches? YES PLEASE! I can’t quite believe summer is almost over either. But I actually opened a can of pumpkin on Saturday so I guess I shouldn’t be so surprised. I’m glad it’s finally cooling off for you!

  8. That’s it. I’m going to have to break down and finally try halloumi. Can you believe I’ve never tried it before? I just never think about it. But that’s gotta change! It sounds like an amazing addition to a salad, and I love the other summer flavors you’ve got in here, too. I hear ya about trying to hold onto the flavors of summer for as long as possible. I’ll gladly give up the heat in favor of the cooler Fall days, but I want all the summer food to stick around for a few more weeks!

  9. What a yummy looking one-meal salad. All the ingredients are on my “eat every chance I have” list, so why not combine them. Thanks for a great inspiration Ben.
