Lentils & Apple Salad

I tried this Lentils & Apple Salad at a friend’s dinner and I fell in love with it. Without trying too hard with fancy ingredients, it is really simple yet absolutely delicious.  It is the kind of food I love to find in my fridge when I’m feeling hungry and looking for something filling yet healthy. It is also great for entertaining, as well as for the lunchbox.

You can play around with it and change or add ingredients, such as celery or chickpeas, for example. You can also add a teaspoon of honey to the dressing or a little Dijon mustard. However I believe the beauty of this salad lies in its simplicity.

  • 1 cup black lentils - عدس بجبة
  • 1 large bell pepper - فلفل ملون
  • 2 medium spring onion - بصلة خضراء
  • 2 medium apple - تفاحة
  • 3 tablespoon parsley (finely chopped) - بقدونس
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice - عصير ليمون
  • 2 tablespoon vinegar - خل
  • 4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil - زيت الزيتون بكر
  • salt and pepper (to taste) - ملح و فلفل

Step by step

  1. Wash and drain lentils. Cook them in 3 cups of water until soft. Discard water and set aside.
  2. Mix the dressing ingredients in a small jar, and pour over the lentils while still a little warm to absorb the taste.
  3. Thinly chop the spring onions, and cut the bell pepper and apples into small cubes. Mix with the lentils. Add the parsley and adjust salt and pepper. Serve immediately or cover and keep refrigerated for later.
