Halloumi Cheese with Spinach Salad

I love Halloumi cheese. We had some the other night, pan seared & a spinach salad dressed with a greek salad dressing. We had some salmon burgers & homemade tzatziki  as well.

My favourite fish store, Ocean Odyssey Inland, makes their own salmon burgers. I just happened to be there right after the fish had been prepared to be made into the patties so I bought 4 burgers once they were ready. There were very lightly seasoned so next time I will add some more seasoning, which is perfect so  that their customers can make them as they want. I just pan seared them.

The cheese, I sliced it & pan seared it until it was brown on both sides in a bit of oil. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice on it before eating…yum!

The salad was spinach, sliced cucumbers, thinly sliced yellow pepper, tomato slices & sliced kalamata olives.

The dressing:  1/2 cup olive oil, 1/3 cup vinegar, 3 tsp sugar, 1/4 tsp oregano, 1/4 tsp salt & pepper     mix together or buy some greek salad dressing

The Salmon Burgers: just pan sear in a bit of oil until completely cooked

The tzatziki was pretty easy to put together: these are the ingredients, recipe is from Claire Robinson on foodnetwork.com the link is below

1 cup Greek whole milk yogurt

1 English cucumber, seeded, finely grated and drained

1 cloves garlic, finely minced

1 teaspoon lemon zest plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
