This will make more slaw than you’ll need for one recipe but it will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days, and would be delicious with cold-cut meats.

Ingredients

  • halloumi 250g block, sliced
  • peri peri sauce (we used Nando's) 3 tbsp, plus more to serve
  • olive oil 1 tbsp
  • carrots 2, peeled and shredded
  • white cabbage ½ small, peeled and shredded
  • red onion 1, finely sliced
  • mayonnaise 4 tbsp
  • lemon juice 1 tbsp
  • lime juice 1 tbsp
  • coriander a bunch, finely chopped
  • rocket or baby spinach leaves a handful
  • ciabatta or burger buns 4, halved and toasted
  • tomato slices to serve

Method

  • Step 1

    Gently toss the halloumi with the peri peri sauce and olive oil, and leave to marinate while you make the slaw.

  • Step 2

    Toss the carrot, cabbage and red onion in a large bowl. Add the mayo, lemon and lime juice, coriander and toss well.

  • Step 3

    Heat a non-stick pan to medium, and fry the halloumi slices. Fry for a few minutes on each side until the halloumi
    is soft, and the marinade turns golden and forms a crust.

  • Step 4

    Add a few rocket or spinach leaves to the buns, and top with the halloumi slices and more peri peri sauce. Pile on the slaw, tomato and add the bun tops.
