What kind of cheese says hello to itself?
Say 'halloumi' to this tasty lemony lentil salad #cheeseplease
FOR THE DRESSING:
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
1 tsp Dijon mustard
14g fresh mint, leaves picked and roughly chopped
FOR THE SALAD:
500g cooked puy lentils
1 small red onion, halved and very finely sliced
100g pomegranate seeds
225g light halloumi, cut into ½cm slices
1. Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, mustard and mint and season. Place the puy lentils, onion, half the pomegranate seeds and the watercress in a large bowl and toss with the dressing.
2. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat and add the halloumi, cooking for 1-2 minutes on each side so that it has deep golden griddle marks all over.
3. Lay the lentil mixture out over a large platter, then top with the halloumi pieces and remaining pomegranate seeds to serve.
