This extra simple salad will hit the spot for just about anyone. Packed with plant based protein from the lentils, it's also an excellent alternative for anyone looking to reduce their animal protein intake. The recipe calls for bell peppers and tomatoes, but mixing and matching different veggies to your taste is always an option.



2 cups Lentils

1 cup Colored peppers

2 Tomatoes

1/2 Parsley bunch


1/4 cup Lemon juice

1/2 tsp Salt

3 tbsp Olive oil

1 tbsp Dried mint


Cook the lentils in boiling water (without salt, adding salt makes the lentils hard) until they are soft.

Chop all vegetables and parsley finely.

In a separate small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients.

Rinse the lentils with cold water, and once cooled mix in with the vegetables and dressing.
