A quick post for a busy week…
This salad was a random creation inspired by Heather’s Quinoa Recipe. It was outstanding! Colorful and full of texture, and remarkably healthy with loads of protein from the quinoa and lentils plus healthy fat from the seeds and olive oil. It all comes together in one pan for an easy one pot meal that would be great hot or cold.
The quantities given in the recipe aren’t exact – like I said, I threw this together. Just do what feels right; it’s hard to go wrong!
