Charred Broccoli Rabe Salad

I love to chargrill broccoli rabe on the barbecue as I think it really brings out the flavour. Combined with the saltiness of the haloumi and the citrus salad dressing, it makes a delicious and very nourishing meal or side.

Serves: 2–4




  • Small bunch broccoli rabe
  • 100g haloumi
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 handfuls watercress
  • 1 preserved lemon
  • Dressing
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • Juice & zest ½ lemon
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  1. Heat barbecue grill or griddle.
  2. Toss broccoli rabe and haloumi in olive oil and grill until broccoli rabe begins to just char and haloumi is golden brown.
  3. Toast pine nuts until just brown.
  4. Remove flesh from preserved lemon and slice skin finely.
  5. Combine all dressing ingredients.
  6. Place watercress in salad bowl. Add remaining ingredients, toss through dressing and serve immediately.
