Ingredients
For the skewers & salad
  • 4 wooden skewers soaked in water for half an hour (so they don’t burn during cooking)
  • 1 chorizo sausage 150 to 170 grams/5.3-6 ounces, peeled (if necessary) & cut into 1-inch or so chunks
  • 16 cherry tomatoes
  • 8 ounces ‘log’ of halloumi cut into large(ish) cubes (at least 1.5 inches square)
  • salad leaves of your choice

For the dressing
  • 1 lime juice & zest
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon white wine or cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt/pepper to taste



Instructions
  1. Heat up your broiler/grill.
  2. Thread the chorizo, tomatoes & halloumi chunks onto the skewers alternately (I began and ended with a tomato, but you don’t have to!).
  3. Lay the skewers on a grill/broiler pan (it’s best if you lay them on a metal grill over a pan so that the juices can drip through). Grill for about 10 minutes, turning regularly (and carefully!) until the halloumi is crisp and browned.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk all the dressing ingredients together and scatter a layer of salad leaves over a large platter or plate.
