Middle Eastern-style Nectarine, Haloumi and Freekeh Salad
  1. Place freekeh and 3 cups of water in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally for 25-30 minutes or until freekeh is tender and water is evaporated. Transfer to a large bowl and cool.
  2. Place haloumi slices onto paper towel and pat dry. Brush with olive oil on both sides. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Cook haloumi slices for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate. Brush nectarine wedges with oil and cook in frying pan, for 2 minutes each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate with haloumi.
  3. Whisk remaining oil, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, honey, chilli flakes, salt and pepper in a jug. Add three-quarters of the parsley leaves to freekeh. Drizzle with half the dressing. Toss until combined. Arrange lettuce leaves on a serving platter and top with the freekeh mixture, haloumi, nectarines, pomegranate arils and remaining parsley leaves. Drizzle with remaining dressing. Serve
