Herb Lentil Salad

About 30 min, makes 2 servings

  • Around 10-15 sprigs of flat leaf parsley, chopped chopped
  • 1/2 cup (1 dl) beluga lentils
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 small yellow or red bell pepper, de-seeded and chopped
  • The juice and zest of half a lemon
  • 1-2 teaspoons of dijon mustard
  • 10 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 4 sprigs of dill, chopped
  • 5 basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 10 kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Make it like so;

  1. Cook lentils according to the instructions on the packaging. I usually soak them for 1h in water before, but it’s up to you!
  2. Combine salad ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Squeeze the lemon into a small bowl.
  4. Add the zest and oil and whisk it with a forsk.
  5. Add the mustard and whisk until it has formed its desired consistency.
  6. Combine all ingredients in the big bowl and serve!
