Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Place the tomatoes, garlic and chili in a roasting dish. Drizzle with some olive oil and roast for 30 minutes, until the skins of the tomatoes are blistered. Remove the garlic and leftover juices from the pan and set aside for the dressing.

Combine the couscous, salt and boiling water in a bowl and cover with cling wrap. Leave to stand for 15 minutes, then loosen with a fork. Set aside.

Combine the couscous, tomatoes, avo, spinach and onions in a large salad bowl. Mash the garlic and combine with the lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, zest and juices from the roasted tomatoes. Mix until well combined.

Lightly drizzle the sliced halloumi cheese with oil to just coat them and then fry in a nonstick pan until golden brown on both sides.

Place the halloumi on top of the salad and drizzle with the dressing. Serve immediately.
