Quail eggs and halloumi salad

So many people still think a salad consists of iceberg lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber.  Glances of pity are thrown in the direction of my husband when he states we had a salad for lunch!!

This delicious salad was simply a combination of soft boiled quail eggs, chopped avocado, chopped plum tomatoes and grilled halloumi sitting on a bed of watercress 🙂

Avocado salsa



1 avocado  – cut in to cubes

1 papaya peeled – deseeded and cut in to cubes

1 small red onion  – chopped in to small pieces

Handful of fresh coriander – roughly chopped

2 red chillies  – deseeded and cut in to small pieces

Juice of 1 lemon and lime


Put all ingredients in to a bowl and mix gently


Baked avocado and feta cheese salad

I find avocado so versatile.This salad is so easy to prepare.

Ingredients: avocado, eggs, green leaves – rocket, watercress, spinach etc, and salad vegetables of your choice and feta cheese.


Cut an avocado in half and remove the stone. Crack an egg into each half – I used quail eggs. Pop  in the oven to bake until the egg is the desired consistency. Prepare the salad base and top with the baked avocado/egg.


Watercress, tomatoes, pomegranate seeds and feta cheese was the base salad here
