Lemony Lentil Salad with Salmon

Salmon and lentils are a familiar combo in French bistro cooking; here they combine in a quick and easy salad. For the best presentation, flake the salmon with a fork, then stir gently into the salad to keep it in chunks, not tiny bits.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Does not work with canned salmon... rather bland. I would try it again with grilled salmon but I can't usually afford salmon filets. "

Go to summer salad

Made this as a quick meal. Pre-cooked lentils with a bay leaf in rice cooker. Assembled as directed. Placed on a bed of lightly dressed (lemon, evoo, s&p) baby arugula. We loved it! Perfect for the soon to be hot weather days here in south Florida.

Delicious!

We were in the mood for a warm meal, so we modified this meal a little. Instead of canned salmon, we grilled salmon fillets, sautéed the onion and red bell pepper, and heated the lentils. I mixed about 2/3 the dressing with the warm lentil/onion/bell pepper mixture (I cut back a little on the oil), and used that as a bed for the grilled salmon. I drizzled the remaining dressing over the salmon and topped with the chopped cucumber. So good!!

Delicious! I broiled a couple of salmon fillets brushed with toasted sesame oil, and then drizzled a little of the sesame oil in the salad for a bit of a smoky flavor. Also used some roasted red peppers along with fresh yellow sweet pepper.

I don't like salmon, so I used tuna instead.
