Warm Lentil Salad with Sausage & Apple

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/lentil_salad.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 2011

We like the firmer texture of French green lentils in this hearty dinner salad featuring sausage and tart apples. Serve with pickled beets and your favorite beer.

4 servings, about 2 1/4 cups each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Whisk 3 tablespoons oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage; cook, stirring often and breaking up, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds more. Stir in lentils and heat through, about 2 minutes. Stir in 5 tablespoons of the dressing and remove from the heat. Stir in fennel, apple and celery.
  3. Toss greens with the remaining dressing. Serve with the warm lentil mixture on top.
