It’s a good idea to start by making your vinaigrette, so add all vinaigrette ingredients to a bowl and mix together well and set aside.
Then, heat a non-stick pan and add a few sprays of cooking spray followed by your chicken. Fry until no longer pink and add your pesto. Stir in your pesto and fry for another few mins before setting aside.
Heat a griddle to a high heat and add your halloumi strips. Leave to grill for 3-4 mins before flipping and cooking for another 3-4 mins.
Mix together baby leaf salad, cucumber and cherry tomatoes in a large bowl and then add your vinaigrette.
To serve, transfer 1/4 of your mixed salad to a bowl, followed by pesto chicken, halloumi, pine nuts and a tiny bit extra pesto if you wish.
