Lentil, haloumi and herb salad

The haloumi brings a wonderful savoury saltiness to this salad, but if you want to save a little time you can substitute ricotta salata (salted ricotta) – or even just some good-quality fresh ricotta.

Left over roast vegetable salad

When I’m cooking roast vegetables for dinner, I always make sure I cook extra, so I’m guaranteed leftovers to use in my lunch the next day. Substitute toasted pine nuts or almonds if you don’t have cashew nuts.
