Quick Lentil Salmon Salad
Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Add lentils and chopped onion, reduce heat to maintain a lively simmer and cook until the lentils are just tender, 11 to 13 minutes. Drain well.Advertisement
Meanwhile, mash garlic and salt into a paste with the side of a chef's knife (or a fork). Transfer to a medium bowl and whisk in oil, vinegar, thyme and pepper.
Remove any skin and/or bones from salmon; flake the salmon into a large bowl. Add sliced onion, carrot and 3 tablespoons of the dressing; gently toss to coat. Add celery and the lentils to the remaining dressing; gently stir to combine. Divide the lentils among 4 bowls, top with the salmon salad and serve with lemon wedges.
