Traffic light salad

Traffic light salad




  • 1 red capsicum, chopped
  • 1 yellow capsicum, chopped
  • 1 green capsicum, chopped
  • 2 Lebanese cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 250g punnet cherry tomatoes
  • 100g Kalamata olives, pitted
  • 200g Haloumi cheese


  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Halve cherry tomatoes and olives. Add all vegetables to a large salad bowl.

Slice the haloumi cheese into 1cm square pieces. Heat a non-stick frypan over medium heat and cook the cheese until golden brown on all sides (I only did 3 sides asI like the two tone look!).

To make dressing, combine all ingredients in a small screw top jar and shake until well combined.

Toss dressing through salad and top with warm haloumi cubes. Serve immediately.


  • Serve this salad with barbecued meat
  • The salad is very quick to prepare, so someone can be throwing it together while another is dissecting the midweek barbecue chicken special or burning the meat on the barbecue.
