Healthy and filling lentil salad with sweet grapes, fresh basil and a delicious maple and mustard dressing. Super delicious and super satisfying!
This is a very good salad. One of the best ones, actually. You can eat cold or warm, both ways delish! Beluga lentils are an amazing and cheap source of protein and fibre. Easy to make, you don’t have to soak them, just cook for about 15 minutes (and they also hold their shape after cooking!). They have a slightly nutty taste and a lovely chewy texture. They taste especially good with the sweet grapes, some thyme and the orange dressing.
And it’s beautiful! There is something so satisfying in dark food, I just love this color!
