Lentil Salad Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1-1/2 cups of French green lentils, rinsed
    2 to 3 cups marble potatoes, quartered
    3 carrots, peeled and finely diced
    1/2 red onion, finely diced
    1/3 cup of parsley, chopped
    1 clove of garlic, minced
    2 teaspoons whole grain mustard
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 tablespoons canola oil
    2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    1/2 lemon, juiced
    1-1/2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  1. In a large pot, cover lentils with water and cook until lentils are tender, about 20-30 minutes. Add more water during this process if necessary.
  2. In a steamer, steam quartered potatoes until tender. Set aside.
  3. In another pot, heat water until boiling. Blanch carrots for 30 seconds and remove before they get too soft. Set aside.
  4. Once lentils are soft, strain them and rinse them. Place in a large bowl with carrots, potatoes, onions, and parsley.
  5. In a small bowl, or glass measuring cup, add garlic, mustard, both oils, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and whisk until dressing is well mixed.
  6. Pour over warm salad, mix together well, and set aside to cool. Serve or place bowl in refrigerator over night for flavors to really come together.

Serves 6-8.
