Halloumi and Lentil Salad

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by auntchelle

A simple, tasty salad that's also attractive. This makes a great lunch & light dinner. Add some grilled lamb and you have a more substantial meal. From an old Super Food Ideas magazine. Australian measurements used.

Great salad! I used red lentils instead of brown and didn't dust the halloumi with flour, because I was sure it would have taken, like, 30 seconds and I wanted to eat already!! ;-) An amazing combination of tastes and takes very little time to make. Will definitely make again, and soon - thank you Mischka!
