Haloumi, feta and mint boureki with Greek salad

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 6 people

  • 350 gm ricotta
  • 150 gm haloumi, coarsely grated
  • 130 gm Greek feta, coarsely crumbled
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1½ tbsp dried mint
  • 24 filo pastry sheets (about 1 packet)
  • 125 ml (½ cup) olive oil, for brushing
  •  
  • Greek salad
  • 500 gm heirloom tomatoes, such as tigerella and ox-heart, coarsely chopped
  • 1 telegraph cucumber, coarsely chopped
  • 110 gm (¾ cup) Kalamata olives
  • 100 gm Greek feta, coarsely crumbled
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 1 cup flat-leaf parsley (loosely packed), coarsely torn
01   Preheat oven to 200C. Combine ricotta, haloumi, feta, eggs and mint in a bowl, season to taste and set aside.
02   Lay a sheet of filo on a work surface, brush with olive oil and top with another layer of filo, then repeat. Brush top with oil, then spoon one-sixth of filling along the longest side of the pastry, leaving 3cm at each end. Fold in sides, then roll up loosely and twist into a coil. Place on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Repeat with remaining pastry and filling. Brush tops with remaining oil and bake until golden and cooked through (15-20 minutes).
03   Meanwhile, for Greek salad, combine ingredients in a large bowl, toss to combine, season to taste and serve with boureki.
