Simple Lentil & Sweet Potato Salad
This is a salad you can eat on a daily basis throughout the summer. It just makes sense with so much good produce around. I love throwing in ingredients that turn salad into a filling meal. This recipe is flexible. It's so simple you can feel free to add some other ingredient that sounds good!
Ingredients (organic if possible):
1 cup cooked green lentils, cooled
4 cup spinach
2 Tbsp diced red onion
1 cooked sweet potato, cooled and cut into cubes
1/2 cup walnuts
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste
plain yogurt to drizzle on top (optional)
1. Place lentils, spinach, red onion, sweet potato, and walnuts in a large bowl and toss to combine.
2. Drizzle olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, and salt and pepper on top and toss so that the liquids are coating the other ingredients equally.
3. Drizzle plain yogurt on top of each portion, if desired.
4. Enjoy! X
