French Lentil Salad


4 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 red onion, finely diced
1 carrot, finely diced
1 stalk celery, finely diced
1 cup French green lentils, rinsed
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
3 cups of salad greens (pick your favorite: mixed greens, spinach, kale
1 cup torn fresh herbs, such as flat-leaf parsley, thyme and basil or if you don’t have fresh herbs just use 1 tablespoon of each of those herbs dried


In a medium saucepan, heat 1 Tbsp oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, and celery, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 6 minutes. Add lentils and cover with 2 inches of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until lentils are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and season with salt and pepper. Let cool.

In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining oil, lemon juice, and pepper flakes. Season with salt. Add lentils, salad greens, and herbs and toss to combine.
