Haloumi, Spinach, and Tomato Salad

Haloumi, Spinach, and Tomato Salad


7 people made this

The easiest yummiest dish in the world to make, and incredibly nutritious and low fat. This dish was passed onto me by a friend when I mentioned I was trying to be vegetarian. She said that her teenage sons were really lazy, but loved making this dish. It tastes DELICIOUS and can be made in 5 - 10 minutes as a cooked lunch or quick dinner.

Quick, easy and tasty. We had it as a light dinner but it might be a nice accompaniment to white fish. - 02 Jun 2015
