I cooked up some Black Lentils, which are also known as Beluga Lentils because of their resemblance in appearance to caviar. As soon as they were done I transferred them into a sieve and rinsed them under cold running water.
Ingredients in the salad were:
- spring onion
- green jalapeño
- ripe red jalapeño
- red onion
- fresh frying cheese
- black lentils
I decided not to use the corn simply because there comes a point when enough is enough. The two of us can only eat so much food at a time.
I sometimes use Mexican Queso Para Freír in place of the more expensive Halloumi. It melts more easily than Halloumi and is less salty but is still a good substitute.
I know some will cringe at the though of two large jalapeños, but I assure you that with the seeds and ribs thoroughly removed they were practically as mild as sweet peppers. Also, slicing the jalapeños thinly gives them a wider distribution in the salad and thus less in each mouthful. Without the cheese this would be a vegan salad.
