Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus trimmed
  • 1 pkg (250 g) halloumi cheese cut in 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices
  • 1 head boston lettuce torn
  • 4 cups torn romaine lettuce
  • 3/4 cups cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper

Method

Place asparagus on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning often, for 3 minutes.

Add halloumi; grill, covered and turning once, until asparagus is tender and slightly grill-marked, and halloumi is grill-marked, about 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, on platter, combine Boston lettuce, romaine lettuce and cherry tomatoes. Whisk together oil, vinegar, salt and pepper; toss with salad. Top with asparagus and cheese.
