I think lentils are highly underrated. I love them. They really fill you up and are so good for you! I love nothing more than a Greek salad so I tossed all my favorite Greek salad ingredients in with the lentils for my lunch this week. I always buy my lentils in a box at Trader Joe’s in the fridge section where veggies are. You can also buy them dried and cook them but trust me this is so much easier to buy them pre cooked. Just make sure you kind of break them up with a fork before you make the salad they get really packed in.
This salad is the bomb.com. So many great flavors and textures! I loved it and hope you will too!
