Halloumi is the traditional cheese used in Mediterranean countries! We love it because it has a very high melting point - which makes it ideal for pan-frying or grilling. And you'll love it for its squeaky texture!


Produced in a facility that processes milk, sesame, eggs, fish, shellfish, crustaceans, mustard, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybean and sulphites.

Cook the lentils: Rinse the lentils, then add to a small pot along with enough water to cover the lentils. Boil over high heat until lentils are tender, 14-15 min.


Prep: Meanwhile, wash and dry all produce. Slice the zucchini lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices. Core, then thinly slice the red peppers into strips. Roughly chop the mint leaves. Zest, then juice the lemon. Cut the halloumi lengthwise into 1/2-inch thick rectangles.


Char the zucchini: Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini slices to the dry pan. Cook, until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. (Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to do this in batches.) Transfer to a plate.


Cook the red peppers: In the same pan, add a drizzle of oil, then the red peppers. Cook, stirring, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. Transfer to the same plate as the zucchini.


Brown the halloumi: Pat the halloumi dry with a paper towel. Add the halloumi to the pan. Cook until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side.


Make the vinaigrette: In a medium bowl, whisk the lemon juice, zest, 1 tsp honey and a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper.


Finish and serve: Drain the lentils. Add the lentils, arugula and veggies to the vinaigrette. Toss together. Divide the salad between bowls. Top with halloumi slices. Sprinkle with mint. Enjoy!
