Preparation – 10 minutes

Wash the tomato, remove the core, and cut the tomato into slices. Peel the red onion and cut it into thin half-moons. Coarsely grate the cucumber.

Wash the rocket, if necessary, and dry it with a salad spinner.

Squeeze the juice from half a lime. Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and mash the avocado with a fork. Mix it immediately with the lime juice to prevent discolouration. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Finishing the halloumi burgers – 10 minutes

Cut the halloumi into slices and heat the griddle pan over high heat. First, briefly griddle the buns on both sides. Spread a little olive oil over the halloumi slices, then griddle them for a few minutes on both sides, until the griddle pattern is visible.

Spread the avocado mixture on the bun bottoms. Place a few slices of tomato on top, along with a little rocket.

Season the grilled halloumi slices with salt and pepper and lay them over the rocket. Sprinkle-grated cucumber and red onion on top. Put the bun top on and serve immediately, enjoy your meal!
