Food: Dinner Tonight – Lentil Salad

I have a bag of lentil I’ve been itching to cook up – normally I drizzle olive oil, a squeeze of lemon, chop up fresh cilantro, and dice up chives and voila a quick and easy dish after a busy day.  But today, this recipe sparked my desire to up the simple meal to this variation – I will use Halloumi cheese naturally – which is the best grilling cheese in my opinion.  Paired with a bottle of white or red (for me) and now we have a gourmet stay-in dinner.

INGREDIENTS

    • Kosher salt
    • ¾ cup black beluga lentils
    • 3 Tbsp. sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
    • 1 Tbsp. honey
    • 5 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 8 oz. grilling cheese (such as bread, Halloumi, or paneer), torn into 2″ pieces
    • 1 lb. sweet mini peppers, ribs and seeds removed, halved lengthwise, cut into thirds if large
    • ½ tsp. dried oregano
    • ¼ cup (packed) basil leaves, torn if large
    • Flaky sea salt  {continued}
