A really healthy lentil salad recipe that everyone will love! Green lentils are used often in France and this is one option that is sure to please everyone. Also called Puy lentils as they come from Le Puy in France.
You can use whatever salad greens you prefer to make this tasty and colourful salad and the little green lentils are so beautiful and full of flavour.
You can use the dried lentils as I have here or for a very quick version you can buy the canned or tinned green lentils and use those instead - just as good and half the time but you won't get the flavour of the cooking stock!
The ingredients for the salad leaves are just for a guide – you can choose your own favourites or whatever you have seasonally and locally – or left in your refrigerator!
The lentils can now be added to the salad of your choice and will be a very healthy, tasty and colourful display.
The best green salad recipe will be enriched with the freshest herbs you can get - if you have some at home in your garden then that is wonderful. The most popular for this recipe are parsley, tarragon, chives with the chopped shallots.
