Yield: 3 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 nectarine (peach, mango, or pineapple taste great too)
  • 4.4 ounces (125 g) halloumi (use double the amount for loaded tacos)
  • 9 small wheat tortillas, 5 inch / 12 cm

Avocado sauce:

  • 2 small avocados
  • 1 tablespoon full fat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt

Garnish:

  • fresh cilantro
  • lime wedges
  • mayonnaise (optional)

Instructions

  • Pit and dice nectarine. Set aside.
  • Pat halloumi dry with a paper towel and cut it into thick slices. Grill or dry fry the cheese in a skillet according to the package instructions. When golden brown, transfer the halloumi to a cutting board and cube it. While the cheese is grilling, make the sauce.
  • Avocado sauce: Pit avocados and mash them in a small bowl. Stir in the sour cream, lime juice, and salt. Taste and adjust seasoning. Cover and set aside.
  • Briefly heat tortillas – either on the grill or in a dry (no oil) skillet on the stove-top. You can also char the tortillas directly over the gas flames for a few seconds using tongs. To keep them warm, transfer them to a plate or bowl, and cover with a clean dishtowel until all tortillas are warmed.
  • Assemble tacos: Spread each tortilla with avocado sauce. Top with diced halloumi and nectarine.
  • Place some mayonnaise into a ziploc bag and cut the tip off to drizzle onto the tacos. Garnish with cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
