Lovely fresh and tangy tasting salad. I used quite a lot of mint and dill and more halloumi then the recipe stated. Only one smallish red onion was plenty. Just make sure to mix well as all the pomegranate seeds end up in the bottom. Toasted pine nuts would be good.

Very fresh and delicious. Left out the mint simply because I don't like it
