Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Watermelon, Halloumi and Giant Couscous Salad with Balsamic Glaze

I love watermelon in salads. It works really well with feta but I have paired it with Halloumi (Mia’s fav) and added wholewheat giant Couscous to make it a fresh but satisfying meal.

Serves: 6

Prep: 20 minutes

Cooking: 4-6 hours

Total: 4.5-6.5 hours

Difficulty: easy



1 small watermelon peeled and cut into chunks
450g Halloumi
1 small cucumber cut into chunks
2 tbsp olives
Fresh basil
2 tbsp balsamic glaze or balsamic vinegar
Extra virgin olive oil

Cook the Couscous according to packet instructions. Douse with some olive oil and fork it over so that it doesn’t stick.

Slice the Halloumi and put it in a hot pan for a couple of minutes each side.

Peel and cut the watermelon into chunks.

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl or on a platter and finish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and the balsamic glaze
