Apple & Ginger Lentil Salad
Crunchy apples are chopped finely to match the size of tiny lentils and toasted sunflower seeds in this healthy lentil salad recipe. Enjoy any leftovers in a whole-wheat pita with some crumbled goat cheese for a quick, healthy vegetarian lunch.
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 2, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
We like French green lentils instead of brown when we want lentils that hold their shape (instead of breaking down) when cooked. Look for them in natural-foods stores and some supermarkets.
