( SERVES 4 )

The mild taste of persimmon works really well to offset the bitterness of watercress, rocket and endive in all kinds of savoury salads, and here the crunch adds a texture contrast with the creamy avocado.
|200 g||Halloumi, cut into cubes or slices|
|1 drizzle||Neutral oil, to fry|
|½ cup||Almonds, roasted|
|1 large||Avocado, just-ripe, cut into small chunks|
|1 large||Persimmon, just-right, cut into wedges|
For the orange dressing
- To make orange dressing, shake together all ingredients in a small jar.
- To make the salad, fry halloumi in a little oil over medium-high heat until golden. Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel.
- Divide watercress, almonds, avocado, persimmon and cooked halloumi between four serving plates. Drizzle with orange dressing and serve at once.
