Rinse the quinoa under cold water. In a saucepan, combine the quinoa with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let it sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and let it cool.

In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, chopped mint, salt, and pepper to create the dressing. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the halloumi slices for 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown grill marks appear. Remove from heat and let cool slightly before slicing into cubes.

In a large bowl, combine cooked quinoa, diced mango, grilled halloumi, arugula, and crumbled feta cheese. Pour the dressing over the salad and gently toss to combine.

Garnish the salad with additional mint leaves. Chill the salad in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

6. Finishing the dish and serving

Before serving, give the salad a final toss to ensure the dressing is evenly distributed. Serve the Summer Quinoa Salad with Mango and Halloumi fresh and enjoy!

8. Final tip

For an extra burst of freshness, you can add some diced cucumber or cherry tomatoes to the salad. You can also substitute the halloumi with grilled chicken or tofu for a different protein option.
