I had this salad at a friends BBQ last summer. My husband loved it so much he asked me to ask for the recipe. My hubby wants to eat lentils and peas???? Okay! So I immediately asked how she made it and Ive been making my version ever since. This recipe is just the framework for a salad - you can add or substitute to make it your own. So yummy! Definitely give this one a try.
Lentil Salad with fresh Peas, Mint, and Lemon
1 package of Trader Joe's pre-cooked lentils (or about 3 cups of cooked lentils)
1 cup of shelled English peas (fresh, not frozen! most grocery stores sell them already shelled in the produce section)
6 scallions, cleaned and sliced (start at the white end and go half way up the green part)
1/3 cup of freshly chopped mint
1 lemon, juiced and zested
3 T olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
I originally made this salad as a side dish for my pork souvlaki recipe...you can see my lunch below! Greek deliciousness!!! Enjoy!
