Grilled halloumi green lentil salad recipe created for the lovely folks at David Lloyd Clubs.
I really like this recipe for two reasons; 1. its incredibly fast to make and ridiculously easy 🙂 and 2. it’s really healthy and screams of summer.
Grilled halloumi, or in this case I throw it in a frying pan, is cut really thick so you end up with a lovely charred crispy exterior and a molten soft center. If there is one bit of advice I’d give when it comes to cooking or grilling halloumi is to cut it thick, cook it on a high heat and fast! Nothing worse than dried out cooked halloumi..yuk!

The basis for this recipe is the green lentil salad, its got a split personality of sharpness and sweet and packed with lots of herbs. And yes, I cheat, I used tinned green lentils. For sure you can cook them in about 20 – 30 minutes and you don’t need to soak them first, but when you’re adding so many other flavours I don’t think you need to – especially if you want to make this in about 5 minutes.
