Ingredients of Lentil Salad

  • 150 g lentils
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 red onion, peeled
  • 1/2 apple, granny smith, cut into 1-2mm cubes
  • 2 celery stalks, cut into 1-2mm cubes
  • A few cherry tomatoes halved and slightly crushed

  • Dressing:
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juice
  • Salt and pepper

How to Make Lentil Salad

  1. Put the lentils in a saucepan and cover with 450 ml water. Add the garlic clove and 1/2 of the onion.
  2. Bring to boil and cover with a lid. Let simmer for 20-25 min until the lentils are cooked but still have a slight bite to them. You do not want to end up with a lentil mush.
  3. Prepare the celery and apple now. Finely chop the other half of the onion too. Once you have chopped the apple, put it in a bowl with water and lemon juice, otherwise the apple will start turning brown.
  4. Drain the lentils and cool down under cold, running water.
  5. Put them in a bowl, add the apples, tomatoes, onion, celery and chopped mint. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice to taste. Season with salt and pepper.
