Filling & Tasty Lentil Salad


This is a super simple summery salad, using some store cupboard ingredients. This is a great one to meal prep ahead of time. And, travels well for a work or school lunch.

Ingredients:

1 can cooked lentils (I used green, but use whatever you fancy. You could also cook lentils if you prefer!).

¼ jar sundried tomatoes.

2 tomatoes.

¼ block of feta cheese.

To serve: Lettuce.

Optional: Avocado.

For salad dressing:

Juice of ½ lemon.

4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil.

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar.

Salt and pepper.

Method:

  • Drain and wash lentils.

  • Chop tomatoes, cheese and avocado into small cubes.

  • In a small jar, measure all the dressing ingredients, add seasoning to your taste and shake up.

  • Mix the dressing and salad ingredients until evenly combined.

  • Serve over lettuce and dig in!

Notes:

  • Add other veggies- cucumber, peppers, spring onions or whatever you like/have.

  • If you aren't into lentils, use chickpeas, cannellini beans or couscous instead.

  • Keep empty jars and use them for making and storing homemade salad dressing. Dressings that are oil based tend to split, but a shake in a jar can bring them back. Plus it makes them easy to store in the fridge!

  • If you're making this ahead, leave out the avocado and add before serving (avocado turns brown!).

Let me know if you try it- it is on my lunch menu this week!

Lots of love,
