Mise en place
Halve the tomatoes. Roughly chop the parsley. Halve the cucumber lengthwise; thinly slice into half-moons on an angle. Cut the halloumi into ¼ inch slices. In a small bowl, make the vinaigrette by combining the vinegar, honey and 3 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with S&P.

Toast the sunflower seeds
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Toast the sunflower seeds, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 min., or until golden brown. Transfer to a large bowl and season with a generous pinch of the spices and S&P. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Warm the quinoa
While the halloumi sears, poke a small hole in the bag of quinoa; microwave, 1 to 1 ½ min., until warm. To the bowl of sunflower seeds, add the quinoa, ½ the parsley, ⅓ of the vinaigrette and the remaining spices.
