Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Peel lengths off the cucumber until you end up with a pile of cucumber 'ribbons', then add them to a bowl with the white wine vinegar and a pinch of salt and sugar
Give everything a good mix up then set aside for later – these are your pickled cucumber ribbons
Place your hand flat onto the halloumi
Slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, so you are left with 2  thinner halloumi steaks
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat
Once the pan is hot, add the halloumi steaks and cook for 2-3 min on each side until golden and crisp
Slice the brioche buns in half
Heat a separate, large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium heat and add the brioche halves, cut-side down, and cook for 2-3 min or until toasted and charred
Meanwhile, chop the cherry tomatoes in half
Wash the baby leaf salad, then pat it dry with kitchen paper
Add the halved cherry tomatoes to a bowl with the washed salad
Drain the pickled cucumber ribbons (set these aside for later!) and add the pickling liquid to the salad
Add a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of pepper and give this a good mix up – this is your dressed salad
Assemble your burgers by piling up the toasted brioche buns with the halloumi steaks, chilli jam and pickled cucumber ribbons
Serve the dressed salad to the side
