You just can’t beat a crispy piece of halloumi! Thanks to our friends at Merchant Gourmet, this classic Quinoa & Halloumi Salad is ready in under 10 minutes! We just LOVE their ready-to-eat Red & White Quinoa, especially when it’s paired with Lucy’s Light & Tangy French Dressing, which is light in calories but heavy on flavour.
