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!

Sooo good! I had never had halloumi before, but it's a favorite now... it's true that it doesn't "need" a dusting of flour, but flour does give it a nice crispy crust that goes well with the fresh salad. (I used my grocery's "pan searing flour" that also includes white pepper) The only thing I did differently was to add a little coriander to the dressing. Excellent!

This is a perfect meal -- delicious, healthy, quick and easy-to-make, colourful and full of fibre. I made half a batch, but used all the 'dressing'. Also skipped the flour on the halloumi -- it just wasn't necessary. This will become a regular at my house. Am I obliged to share it with the family? Please say no!

Yum! Great recipe - I cooked my lentils from dry and made the salad warm, adding some red wine vinegar. Loved it - thanks!

This is my favourite salad ever. I often add sliced red capsicum and very lightly steamed asparagus, which just adds a bit more goodness. Also I never dust the halloumi with flour, and it tastes delicious.

This is AWESOME!!! Truly delicious! DH and i were a little nervous when we heard the ingredients--it seems a little daring. I used a little less mint and onions which worked out well. Thinking that I'd written the recipe down wrong, I added salt--DO NOT ADD SALT!! The cheese is very salt and adds all the flavor needed. AWESOME!! A definite make again (I served it with a little bit of pork loin w/ a soy sauce, garlic, and lemon pepper marinade and it was perfect!)

Spot on...thanks so much for sharing! When assembling the salad I noticed I had no red onions so I used chopped spring onions instead. I used chili halloumi which gave it a nice bite. A lovely refreshing salad which would go nic served alongside BBQ meats.
