Lentil Salad with Dijon & Vinegar Dressing

Friday April 18, 2014

I always feel so virtuous when I eat lentil salads. This one, made with green lentils & carrots and doused in Dijon mustard and red wine vinegar, is also a pleasure to eat. I love the zesty dressing and tender but slightly firm texture of the lentils and carrots. It keeps well for days and can be eaten alone or over salad greens or with a fried egg on top.
