Greek-style Buddha bowl is a fab mix of halloumi, avocado, olives, veg and a pouch of mixed grains for a really healthy and balanced meal in one bowl. It just goes to show that salads don't have to be boring! Salads are about so much more than just plain leaves - you can use a microwavable pouch of mixed grains in this one (it's so much easier than having to boil them yourself, even if it is a bit of a cheat!), as well as halloumi cheese for a really filling meal. Enjoy this recipe with hummus, cucumber and a red pepper for a really colourful and nutritious meal
