Grilled pumpkin and haloumi salad with yoghurt sauce

You know when you start waking up in the morning and it starts to get darker and darker. Plus that after work walk you try and do everyday seems to end with only the dull glow of the moon? It's that time of year in Australia when the long warm days quickly escape us so we are trying to BBQ as much as possible before winter hits and we never see the light of day again.  While sausages, lamb chops and grilled chicken are staples on our BBQ menu, I always like to add a salad to the mix. This pumpkin and haloumi salad is the perfect side to BBQ feast.  Ingredients: 500g kent pumpkin, seeded and cut into 7mm slices 180g haloumi sliced into 5mm slices 150g lettuce 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil 1 ½ tablespoon dukkah ½ teaspoon salt 2 ½ tablespoon yoghurt 1 teaspoon lemon 1 tablespoon mint finely chopped 1 teaspoon olive oil   Method : Heat the BBQ Mix the oil, dukkah and salt Rub the oil mixture onto the pumpkin Grill pump
