  • 6 lamb cutlets
  • 80 gms pan fried haloumi
  • 100 gms mixed lettuce leaf
  • 80 gms cherry tomatoes halved
  • 80 gms Japanese/Kent Pumpkin diced- optional if carb counting
  • 80 gms diced cooked/baked/cryovaced sugar free beetroot- optional if carb counting
  • 2 tablespoons red onion sliced thinly
  • 2 teaspoons pine nuts
  • 2 tablepoons extra virgin olive oil EVOO
  • A splash of balsamic vinegar


  • Cube the pumpkin skin and all, drizzle with a little EVOO and bake it in a very hot oven for about 25 -35 minutes until cooked and browned all over but not too soft.S
  • Slice the haloumi into desired shape, but not too thick, and pan fry in a little EVOO till golden on both sides. Allow the pumpkin and haloumi to cool slightly.
  • Prepare the salad by dividing the lettuce leaves between 2 plates. Sprinkle with thinly sliced red onion, the cherry tomatoes, pumpkin, beetroot and haloumi.
  • Cook the lamb to your liking eg, medium rare, season with salt and pepper and pan fry it on high for about 2-3 minutes on each side so it’s caramelised on the outside but cooked medium on the inside. Let lamb sit for a couple of minutes.
  • Arrange 3 lamb cutlets on top of each salad, sprinkle each plate with 1 teaspoon of pine nuts.
  • Drizzle with a little balsamic vinegar and a generous splash of extra virgin olive oil EVOO.


  • Replace the balsamic vinegar with red wine vinegar or lemon juice or just use olive oil.
  • If carbs aren’t an issue use the broiled/baked/cryovaced beetroot to this salad. Make sure it hasn’t had any sugar added.
  • Load this recipe up on the Japanese/Kent/Kabocha pumpkin if you are not concerned about the carbs.
  • Use sweet potato in place of the pumpkin.
