A Lovely Lentil Salad

I’m not a fan of leafy salads. Infact, I like salads to have anything but leaves in them. This is a delicious and filling lentil salad that I whipped up.

A Lovely Lentil Salad

  • 1 cup dry green lentils
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 whole cloves of garlic, bruised
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 3 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 red onion, finely, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  1. Put the lentils, bay leaves, cloves of garlic and oregano into a pan, cover with water and cook for 30 minutes until soft.
  2. Meanwhile put the oil, vinegar, garlic, cumin and mint into a jug and whisk until mixed.
  3. When the lentils are drained and cooled, stir through the dressing, the onion and bell pepper. Serve!

I put some chopped up avocado on mine. Just because I love avocado.
