Good Food Friday : Lentil and Haloumi Salad

I ate two massive bowls of this last sunday. I’m not kidding. It was absolutely delicious and full of the good stuff. You can use tinned lentils although I prefer to cook them up myself. If you choose to cook them, do this before hand but add to the salad warm for a great winter touch.

Lentil and Haloumi Salad

1 cup of lentils cooked (or one tin)
1 red onion thinly sliced
3 tomatoes roughly chopped
250gm of haloumi
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Mint to garnish and toss through

Once lentils are prepared, set them aside.
Marinate the tomatoes with sliced onion and chopped mint a generous drizzle of oil and season with salt and pepper – set aside.
Cut haloumi into desired size portions and fry on each side in a fry pan with a little oil.
Combine lentils, tomato mixture, haloumi and stir well.
Top with mint and serve.
