Lemon Lentil Salad Recipe

Did you know that lentils have the third highest level of protein out of all the legumes and nuts? Health Magazine even selected them as one of the five healthiest foods to eat! I love using the in soups and salads and they take on the flavor of whatever ingredients you use.

I discovered this recipe for Lemon Lentil Salad on the Food Network Canada app on my iPhone. It’s so simple to make and literally takes only 5 minutes. It’s perfect for a quick lunch or a healthy side salad for dinner. The dressing is delicious and one that I would make again for other types of salads. Even the kids enjoy it and don’t know that it’s a “healthy food”.
