Ontario Peach Lentil Haloumi Salad

This months Recipe Redux theme is a ‘Vacation-Inspired Theme’, encouraging members to create a recipe with an ingredient that they’ve seen on their summer¬†travels.

I’ve taken a few small trips this summer, however nowhere too far. The furthest was a long-weekend trip to Boston. However the most memorable trips I’ve taken this summer were around my own backyard, in Ontario. Exploring places in cottage country to cool neighbourhoods in Toronto, to Prince Edward County wineries – Ontario has so many hidden gems.

Barley Lentil Apple Salad

A omnivore-approved!! My boyfriend (who enjoys both meat and vegetarian meals) states that this salad is a favourite of his – not only for it’s delicious taste but for how hearty it is! Let’s give thanks to the satiating power of a few nutrient-rich¬†vegetarian ingredients – lentils, barley, almonds, apples and leafy greens! I love how simple and easy this is to make. A summer must-try!
