Halloumi & Blackberry Salad

Just over a week ago I had the pleasure of visiting @hughlowefarms for a tour of their strawberry and blackberry farms. It’s funny as I’d actually been buying these Driscoll’s Victoria Sweet Blackberries from @waitroseandpartners but hadn’t realised exactly where they were grown. People associate blackberries with being very tart with too many seeds and tend to put them into jams and puddings. This variety are large, super sweet, pops of juiciness and perfect for snacking or adding to recipes. Definitely worth a try. [AD]
