I had a version of a lentil salad recipe at my sons surprise 13th birthday party hosted by my in laws this summer. I was blown away with how tasty and filling it was. She had very kindly been looking up some vegan recipes as a nod to the cleanse I was on.
My mother-in-law’s salad was quite simply delicious. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. I think of sunshine and family when I think of lentil salad now and I have been so keen to make my own version.
I was worried it was going to involve a lot of time spent prepping veg and soaking lentils and I am time short – especially in the long summer holidays. So I was determined to take a few shortcuts and make this as quick and easy as possible, take a look
This is a 10 minute recipe as I used prepared Puy Lentils and already chopped herbs and spices. It is nutritious and delicious. Lemons, a red apple and spring onions gave it a real sunshine kick and I am delighted with the end result.
Do let me know if you give this protein packed salad a go – it is the perfect picnic vegan recipe and a lovely light lunch idea too.[amd-yrecipe-recipe:3]
