I love this salad, the tastes mingle beautifully together. If you haven’t got one of the ingredients simply substitute with something else – beans, apples, different herbs and nuts. Be creative!
1 cup cooked lentils (any kind)
¼ cup lime (or lemon ) juice
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp freshly grated ginger root
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 pears, chopped and tossed in lemon juice
1 bunch watercress or coriander
½ cup feta cheese
2 Tbsp chopped pecan nuts
Salt & pepper to taste
Whisk together the lime juice, honey, olive oil and ginger.
Pour the liquid over the lentils and leave for at least ½ hour.
Mix the lentils with the other ingredients and serve at room temperature.
