1 tbsp pomegranate molasses

Juice of half a lemon

Sea salt

METHOD

To make the dressing, simply shake all of the ingredients together in a jar until fully combined, taste, season with a little sea salt and set aside.

Brush the halloumi slices with a little olive oil and then grill or griddle them for a few minutes on each side until golden and tender. Place on some kitchen paper to remove any excess oil.

Arrange the watermelon chunks and halloumi slices on a large platter. Scatter over the mint leaves. Shake the dressing up again and spoon all over the salad and it is ready to serve.
