6 Reviews for Warm Lentil Salad with Sausage & Apple

Tasty and quick

A tasty, filling dish that is quick and easy to make. I made it with pork sausage that I cooked together with a quarter of a habanero chili (which I removed at the end) for added heat and flavour. I also added a big spoonful of grain mustard to the dressing.

Easy & Tasty

I usually omit the fennel just because I don't have it on hand at the time and it still turns out delicious. If you are sensitive to the acid of vinegar, just don't use as much of the dressing, but I think it's perfect. I normally don't have Dijon so plain yellow mustard works perfectly fine as well. I like the spice so I always use some sort of hot sausage. Sometimes when I don't have any apples I also substitute dried cranberries instead.

Too vinagery

I made the dressing and tried it, and it was waaaaay to vinagery! So I added some sugar and also just a little bit of mayo to make a tiny bit creamy, and then all the flavors came together and it was delicious. But I don't know how others could have eaten it without the sugar, as the vinager was too overpowering.

Yummy combination of flavors!
Try it with chorizo!

This was super easy and fast, and yes it makes great leftovers. I used chorizo instead, and sliced it instead of crumbles.....SSOOOOOOOOOO good!

So tasty with apple sausage

I make this all the time - it's super quick for dinner and makes a perfect leftover to take to work for lunch the next day!

I liked it without the fennel better, though, and made it with Trader Joe's chicken apple sausage instead (sliced, not crumbled).

dressing, lentils
