Quinoa salad with two cheeses

I love salads, especially foody ones with a lot of different things in them. And quinoa is a new discovery for me. So tasty! This is not an exact recipe, because once again I have forgotten exactly what I did. But the good news is, you don't need it. Just use whatever you'd like. It will be great. This one was something like this:

-quinoa (rinse well, boil in plenty of salted water, drain.)
-pan-fried halloumi with garlic
-thin slivers of red onion
-cherry tomatoes
-rocket (aragula)
-crumbled feta cheese
-salt and pepper
-olive oil

I think that was pretty much that, but you could of course add any veggies you'd like, and any cheeses you see fit. Or go carnivore and add bacon, yum. Or chicken. Or - well, yeah, I'm sure you see the point by now.

I love the sound of this. Haloumi is very hard to find here, for some reason. But I bet there are a lot of cheeses that would taste good in this.

Great looking salad. I love being able to just "throw things together" and this one - with quinoa (my new favorite grain) looks perfect.
