Easy Lentil Salad Recipe

Lentil Salad


One of my favorite Salad. Lentils are a high protein, high fiber member of the legume family. Not only do lentils help lower cholesterol, they are of special benefit in managing blood-sugar disorders since their high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal. As a vegetarian/Pescatarian, A lentil salad is my go to when in need of some protein. I had no idea lentils were so tasty and filling. 

I hated salads until My colleague shared this recipe with me. I wanted to make the easier/less complicated version of the recipe. Here it is.


What you need:

1/2 to 1 cup of lentils(I like the green ones)
5-10 Grapes tomatoes
1 cup of spinach(washed and chopped)
1 ripe Avocado

Dressing:
Olive oil, Balsamic Vinegar, 1 slice of lemon, red onions( chopped), salt, pepper to taste. Mix together in a small bowl.
I don't really measure. I feel that it takes the fun out of cooking. 

Prep:

Boil lentils in salt water for about 20 minutes.
Chopped tomatoes, spinach.
Slice avocado.

In a salad bowl add cooked lentils to spinach, tomatoes, add dressing and mix together with a tongue or fork.

Add avocado as garnish.

Enjoy!

I tried this salad...literally out of the bowl! I was skeptical about no measurements, but then found that it was kind of fun just winging it. ��
