Kinda want to keep this all to myself, kind of want to SHOUT OUT TO THE WORLD THAT THIS IS THE YUMMIEST DISH EVERRRRRRR!!!!! Grape, haloumi and cauliflower salad with a side of all my food dreams just came true!!!!!!!! The sweetness of @aussiegrapes is so scrumptious teamed with the salty haloumi and creamy nature of baked cauliflower in this one, plus grapes 🍇add a good punch of antioxidants to the meal. Red grapes as you see in this recipe are particularly high powerful antioxidants known as anthocyanins, which can help to protect your body from heart disease, the effects of stress, and chronic disease. Have I convinced you yet? Get cracking friends !

Whilst veggies are cooking slice some of the Australian Red Seedless Grapes in half and keep some whole, then set aside.
