The better quality your steak, the more amazing this dish is! Since you are serving the steak with bread, you can get away with buying less!
The bold colors of this dish match the bold flavors! I love the black against the ruby red with the white! If you can’t find black quinoa you can use black rice, or regular quinoa – it will taste almost the same just not be as bold in color!
Halloumi cheese salad can be found in most cafes in Israel. It is delicious but often the same. Here is a twist on the usual restaurant salad that can be pulled together in minutes! Tuscany spice blend can be found in all spice shops and sometimes in the supermarket. If you don’t live in Israel but come to visit be sure to pick it up at any spice shop or market, it is world’s better than the other versions and not too heavy to bring back!
You can make this salad without lentils to save time, but they add depth and flavor! I love the colors of this salad. You can also add chicken to it!
This recipe is fun to play around with. Add more fruit and vegetables and proteins if you wish! My top picks would be fresh mozzarella cheese, celery and persimmons (all together!)
