Lentil, Feta and Pear Salad

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.
