Thinly slice the red onion. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Grate the carrot (unpeeled). Thinly slice the tomato into half-moons. Shred the cos lettuce (see ingredients list). Slice the haloumi into 1cm-thick strips. Place the haloumi strips in a small bowl of cold water and set aside to soak for 5 minutes. TIP: Soaking the haloumi helps mellow out the saltiness!

In a medium frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar, water and brown sugar and stir to combine. Cook until dark and sticky, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.

While the onion is caramelising, combine the garlic, dried oregano, a pinch of pepper and a drizzle of olive oil in a medium bowl. Drain the haloumi, then pat dry with paper towel and add to the bowl with the garlic mixture. Toss the haloumi to coat.

Wash the frying pan and return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, add the haloumi and cook until golden brown, 2 minutes each side. While the haloumi is cooking, heat the mini flour tortillas in a sandwich press, or on a plate in the microwave for 10 second bursts, until warmed through.
