Rinse thoroughly with cold water 

2 Golden Halloumi, Lemon & Pear Salad

4 Golden Halloumi, Lemon & Pear Salad

Strip the mint leaves from the stems and chop finely

Season generously with salt and pepper

6 Golden Halloumi, Lemon & Pear Salad

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 1-2 tbsp olive oil over a medium heat
