Is this the new Mediterranean halloumi salad? Possibly because we're slap bang in the middle of peach season (in France anyway), we're overrun with ripe fruits simply aching to be turned into salad.
No basil today, but I don't think you'd notice the difference. Actually I take that back, you *do* notice the difference, the basil takes the edge off the lemon and chilli-spiked dressing, but it's not disastrous if you don't have it.
