Quasi-recipe: Lovely lentils

by | Dec 22, 2012

Inspired by one of my favorite side dishes at LIC Market, I set off to incorporate lentils into my salad yesterday.  There are so many good things about lentils and they’re so simple to make, dressing them up or down as you like.  As a kid, I remember having homemade lentil soup all the time and they’ve always been a favorite of mine.  Here are the ingredients I used to make the dish in this photo:

Green lentils
Mesclun greens and baby spinach
Hard-boiled egg
Pitted Manzanilla olives
Dressing (olive oil, red wine vinegar, mustard, salt & pepper)
French bread
