Serendipity: noun. The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way. This perfectly describes a set of events that started with a normal shopping experience. Every afternoon that I train at gym I go shopping. This ensures that I only buy the vegetables that we need. The shop is next to the gym so it is not inconvenient at all. And daily shopping is a habit I have from overseas. On the 19th of July I found fresh halloumi while buying cheese. I have only made it a handful of times, but decided that it would make a nice change to our usual tomato topped bruschetta. Then on the 20th Caroline posted a recipe for rosemary and garlic butter halloumi. I decided to make this for starters when we had guests coming to us the following Sunday. But I never got around to doing that. 

Today’s inspiration ♥ Recipe For Smokey Halloumi Salad ♥ can be found on Lavender and Lime Share on X

Then Salty Flames dropped off some smoked garlic for me to test and I knew straight away it would be amazing with the halloumi. Finally on the 5th of August I fried some up and it was an instant hit. So much so that I had to turn the rest of my halloumi into a smokey halloumi salad with seed brittle and a ginger dressing. It has to be one of easiest salads I have ever made and certainly ranks up there with one of the tastiest. A big thank you to Caroline for the inspiration and to Salty Flames for the smoked products. You can make this salad without the seed brittle and salad dressing if you are looking for something really quick to make or if you are need of an instant snack.
