Woman's Weekly recipe The salty flavour of the halloumi is the perfect accompaniment to the greens in this spring veg dish. Asparagus, courgettes and pea shoots drizzled in a lemon, soy sauce and honey dressing makes a lovely light lunch for a warm day


  • 200g (7oz) asparagus spears
  • 6 baby courgettes, halved lengthways
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 225g pack of halloumi cheese, sliced into 12
  • 4 handfuls of pea shoots or baby salad leaves
For the dressing:
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Half a tsp each soy sauce and honey
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds, toasted

You can replace halloumi with crumbled feta, and caraway with fennel seeds.


  1. Coat the asparagus and courgette lightly in oil and cook in batches in a griddle pan until tender. Set aside on a warm plate. Coat the cheese slices in the remaining oil and griddle them.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk all the dressing ingredients in a jug.
  3. Arrange the cheese and the veg on warm plates. Drizzle with dressing and put a few pea shoots or salad leaves on top.
