Fruit in a salad? Absolutely! You'll need leaf or romaine lettuce, vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, red onions, halloumi cheese, and the Irresistibles dressing of your choice. As for fruit, strawberries, raspberries, apples, cantaloup, and watermelon all contrast wonderfully well with the saltiness of the cheese and the crunchiness of the vegetables. Once you've sliced all your fruits and veggies, simply grill the halloumi on the BBQ or in a pan and combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Top with your favourite dressing and enjoy.

If you're looking for a "clean out the fridge" recipe, look no further than a salad bar! You'll need your favourite Quebec lettuce, vegetables (shredded carrots, beets, cabbage, bell peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc.) and the dressing of your choice. Next, choose your protein: nuts, tofu, tuna, hardboiled eggs, chicken, bacon, shrimp, legumes, etc. Look in your pantry to see if you've got a can of chickpeas or red beans. You can even add rice and quinoa to the list of ingredients.

Once you've gathered all your ingredients, cut them up and place them in separate bowls. Then invite guests to assemble their own salad bowl. Don't worry about ending up with leftovers, you can store everything in the fridge in a container for a meal the next day!
