Halloumi, Lentil & Chorizo Salad

After my trip to Wales last weekend, I’ve been itching to go away. I was also away in Lisbon for work this week, but didn’t get any time to go exploring, and it’s got me thinking about my next holiday!

Meddy Steady Cook: Lentils, Halloumi and ChorizoMeddy Steady Cook: Lentils, Halloumi and ChorizoAfter my month off over Christmas, I’ve been on a bit of a budget, which means I’ll probably be spending my break somewhere in Europe.

I adapted my go-to barbecue sidedish recipe to include some Cypriot halloumi I was recently gifted, and it is good.

This halloumi, lentil and chorizo salad is incredibly simple to make, but is delicious and pretty fail-proof, too! It’s perfect for BBQs, or as a side dish for grilled fish or chicken.

    • Thank you Jasmin! I couldn’t resist adding chorizo, so delicious, and a warm salad feels so much more filling particularly as it’s still a little cold out! xxx

    • Thanks Charlie! It really is – halloumi and chorizo, how could you wrong!? xx

  • Becky Louise

    Oh my gosh that looks amazing! I love this kind of food and chorizo and halloumi is my favourite!! I pretty much live on Middle Eastern/ Mediterranean food, but I love Spanish food too. Just tried out a frittata on my blog if you fancy it. Now off to tesco, I’m having this salad for lunch 😀
