Blood Orange Halloumi Salad


Here's something I made over the holidays, for a large family gathering. I made a huge amount, so I won't even give quantities here - it's a salad, just use as much of each ingredient as you'd like! Do go heavy on the blood oranges though, they're so lovely this time of year!

Blood Orange Halloumi Salad

Boil quinoa according to packet instructions. (Don't forget to rinse it well first!!) Marinate some thinly sliced red onion in white balsamic vinegar (sherry vinegar would be nice too) for half an hour. Fry diced halloumi cheese in a little bit of oil until golden. Leave the quinoa and halloumi to cool a bit.

Arrange arugula (rocket) on a large platter. Mix the quinoa, red onions and halloumi with coarsely grated carrots, lots of diced blood oranges and dried cranberries. Drizzle with some olive oil if you'd like, and perhaps some of the vinegar that the onion has marinated in. Place it all on top of the arugula. Top with a large handful of pomegranate seeds.

This looks so vibrant and healthy. I got a packet of Quinoa from a friend and I wasn't sure what to do with it-sounds like this is the ideal recipe to make! :)
