Watermelon, Pickled Red Onion and Halloumi Salad

Our Griddle plate is ideal for preparing summer dishes that would also be cooked on a BBQ. Fresh, sharp and salty, this salad would be perfect enjoyed with a cold glass of rosé


  • 1 small red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 500g watermelon, cut into thin wedges, trimming the rind as you go
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 x 250g halloumi block, cut into thick slices
  • 1 small bunch of parsley leaves, roughly chopped
  • 50g of shelled pistachios, toasted and roughly chopped


  1. Place the red onion in a small bowl with the lemon juice and sugar, stir and set aside for 30 minutes.

  2. Heat up the Miele Griddle Plate over a high heat, brush the halloumi with a little oil and cook for a couple of minutes until seared on both sides. Cut each slice in half.

  3. To serve, spread the watermelon on a platter, place the halloumi slices on top, sprinkle over the parsley, pickled red onions and pistachios. Mix the olive oil with the pickling onion liquor, whisk, and pour all over the salad.
