Asparagus is a pretty vegetable, and looks great in this super-quick, delicious salad which will leave you feeling nice and healthy. The tasty halloumi works well with the crisp vegetable, and whole buttery toasted almonds round it off well. I’ve kept the dressing simple so as not to detract from the subtle flavours. When it’s a little warmer outside, you can create this salad on the barbecue.
For the salad
|2 bunches||Asparagus, ends trimmed|
|200 g||Haloumi cheese, sliced|
