Simple Lentil Salad

Posted on 2016-04-12
Simple Lentil Salad

Lentil salad recipe is healthy and easy to make with few simple ingredients; and probably one of the most cooked meals in my household. This salad is definitely a crowd pleaser and a great idea for potlucks and BBQ parties.

Yield: Serves 4

  • 1 cup lentils, picked over to remove any stones
  • 12 medium mushrooms, sliced
  • 3/4 cup sliced green onion
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Place the lentils in a pot. Add 3 cups water and curry powder. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook covered until lentils are tender, about 30-35 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high. Add the mushrooms and saute until mushrooms are golden and all liquid is absorbed. Add the turmeric powder and saute for 1-2 minutes.

Combine the lentils, mushrooms, green onion, cilantro and black olives in a large mixing bowl.

Whisk 2 tablespoons olive oil, 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Serve at room temperature.
