Chimichurri Dressing:

Dissolve the salt in the boiling water and cool.

Place the herbs, chilli flakes, garlic and the oil in a food processor and blend until smooth. Tip into a bowl and whisk in the vinegar, pepper and salt water. Set aside. Makes ¾ cup.


Lamb Cutlets:

Brush the cutlets with oil and season well. Heat a sauté pan or barbecue and cook the cutlets for 2 minutes each side or until done to your liking. Transfer to a plate and immediately spoon a little chimichurri over each cutlet.

Combine the quinoa with the remaining dressing, season generously and place on a large platter.

Scatter over the pumpkin seeds, dates, halloumi and herbs. Serve the cutlets alongside.
