The Cookbook Challenge - Week 5 - Greek



This weeks challenge was Greek.  Unfortunately I dont own any Greek cook books as yet though I know for a fact that I will be receiving George Calombaris' Greek Cookery from the Hellenic Heart which I am dying for, I have now been twice to Hellenic Republic, am going again for my mums birthday on xmas eve with the kids in tow & cant wait to start cooking some of my now favourite recipes.  So this weeks challenge is a bit early for me & so I stuck to a very simple Greek Salad from Bill Granger's Open Kitchen.  I know it's very boring for a challenge however with the craziness of Christmas in full swing this week I just dont have the time for anything more elaborate than a bit of chopping & grilling.  A lovely light salad with lots of fresh mint & parsley from the garden & to make it irresistible, lots of gorgeous grilled haloumi heaped on top.  The recipe can be found here.

The grilled haloumi looks seriously yum and a great change from a normal salad of just vegetables!

Chopping and grilling is good enough for me! Looks so fresh and healthy.

Loving this salad. You absolutely cannot go wrong with grilled haloumi, and the rest looks fresh and tasty :)

If you love the Hellenic Republic, you'll love his cookbook - enjoy Christmas eve...and I think anything with grilled haloumi on top has to be a winner.

There's nothing wrong with simple, particularly where grilled cheese is involved!

It may be a simple recipe but it definitely looks delish (and healthy)
