Spinach, Halloumi and Red Pepper Pitta

I've had a lovely weekend experimenting with all sorts of cooking and my parents and sister came round for dinner this evening too and we enjoyed a Brazilian feast, more about that tomorrow! This is probably the easiest sandwich to make although it can be a bit messy to easy with the dressing, but the flavour combination is just fantastic and the lemon in the dressing really beings the flavour out. It was originally a salad so if you take the pitta away you get a delicious salad too.

Spinach, Halloumi and Red Pepper Pitta (adapted from
(Serves 4)
(7 WW ProPoints per serving)

2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp mustard
salt and pepper
100g Cheese, Halloumi, sliced
4 handfuls baby spinach
200g roasted red peppers
4 wholemeal pittas

Make the dressing in a large mixing bowl by whisking together the lemon juice, olive oil and mustard with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Dry fry the halloumi cheese in a frying pan until golden brown, meanwhile toast the pittas until they are soft.

Leave the pittas to cool for a couple of minutes and then open them up making a slit in one of the long sides. Put the spinach in, then the red peppers and then the halloumi on top. Drizzle over a little of the dressing and serve.
