Quinoa is one of my favourite grains I wanted to make a vibrant colourful and extremely tasty salad dish as the sun is out here in the UK and wanted something fresh and light to keep me going all day. This particular recipe has done exactly that! I have not had to snack on anything since I had it at lunch and I’ve just finished my dinner so it really works!
A few steps to prep and then just to mix all together, voila! You have your healthy salad for the day.
1 small cup quinoa cooked
Halloumi pan fried and diced
1 medium cucumber diced finely
2 tomatoes diced
4 spring onions slice
1 tin sweet corn drained
Baby spinach sliced
Salt to taste
1 tsp cumin & coriander powder
Lemon juice to taste
I fry the halloumi cheese by thinly slicing and then placing into a hot non stick pan with olive oil. Fry off on both sides until golden brown
Place all the ingredients into a large bowl. Mix thoroughly so everything is fused together

I steamed some broccoli for dinner yesterday and I was left there standing with a good looking raw broccoli stalk in my hands! All that came to mind was a fresh tangy salsa. I had some juicy plum tomatoes to use so this is what came about.
A salty, spicy and sour crunchy salsa to tantalise your tastebuds! It did mine. When I gave my husband some to try, he couldn’t figure out that I had used the broccoli stalk. At first he guessed it was raw mango and then cucumber. I told him, and he was pleasantly surprised. So for all you non broccoli lovers out there…try this! You may enjoy it! 😉
Raw broccoli stalk, diced
Handful of baby plum tomatoes
Fresh lemon juice
Piri piri spice
A pinchof ground cumin powder
Salt to taste
Take the diced stalk and place in a bowl. Add all the ingredients and combine well. Use the lemon and piri piri spice according to taste. I like mine very lemony and spicy!
Eat immediately or set in the fridge until you’re ready to eat.
