Warm Lentil Salad with Sausage & Apple for Two


From EatingWell:  September/October 2011

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

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



  1. Whisk 1 1/2 tablespoons oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  2. Heat the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, stirring often and breaking up into bite-size pieces, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds more. Stir in lentils and heat through, about 2 minutes. Stir 2 tablespoons of the dressing into the lentil mixture 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.
