Halloumi is a Cypriot cheese made from a mixture of goat’s, sheep’s and cow’s milk. The great thing about this cheese is that it doesn’t melt, so it’s perfect for frying and grilling. I’ve topped this Greek-inspired lentil salad with halloumi steaks, to add some cheesy saltiness to this hearty salad. - Anne Faber
