Author Notes

Fresh figs has slowly become one of my favourite fruits. It's easy to eat, with no seeds and no peeling. It is perfect for a refreshing and easy to make salad. There's nothing complicated about this dish. The only cooking involved is grilling or pan-frying the halloumi slices. So if you are too busy at work and have no mood to cook a full on hot meal when you get home, this will be a good option. Cut, grill, toss, plate and eat. Simple. —Ai Pheng Y
