The combination of pan-fried okra, haloumi, pomegranate and fresh herbs makes this salad a simple weekday dish. Okra often has a bad reputation for being slimy but, rest assured, when it’s cooked properly it’s delicious. Simply pan-fry quickly over medium–high heat to make it crispy rather than let it steam and go soft.

Serves: 4
