Okay, okay, okay! Let’s talk about this salad. Based off of this recipe, it has quickly become one of our favorite salads to prepare on Sunday and eat throughout the week. It is filling, packed with vegetables, full of plant based protein, and bursting with flavor. Paired with an herbed yogurt sauce, it is absolutely irresistible!
This salad is made of dry lentils cooked with spices and lemon juice, mixed with cooked quinoa and raw vegetables and salty feta, and tossed with a lemony-garlic vinaigrette. I prefer to eat it over a bed of mixed greens with the yogurt sauce on the side! As a bonus, it comes together super fast. While the lentils and quinoa cook, you chop the vegetables, whisk together the vinaigrette, and mix the yogurt sauce! This meal can be on the table in a little over 30 minutes.
I hope you enjoy this healthy, easy, and filling salad!
Lentils and spices are ready for a hot bath!
This salad is so beautiful and bursting with color!
My assistant joined me for this shoot 😉 he had absolutely NO interest in the salad, but always wants to be close to his mama!
