Watermelon and Halloumi summer salad

With the lovely hot weather we are having I have been craving summer salads. This salad provides all the ingredients of summer for me – using a base of couscous with refreshing mint and lime, juicy watermelon and cucumber combined with the salty taste of heated halloumi and the added crunch of pistachios makes a satisfying summer salad!
