Mediterranean Lentil & Kale Salad
The kale and lentils in this Mediterranean-inspired salad recipe are combined with sweet red peppers and a bold garlic and dried tomato vinaigrette. To cut down on prep time, we use refrigerated steamed lentils, but offer instructions on preparing your own.
Tip: To cook your own lentils, rinse and drain 3/4 cup brown, French, or yellow lentils. In a medium saucepan bring 2 cups water to boiling. Stir in lentils. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 20 to 25 minutes or just until tender. Drain and cool. Store in refrigerator up to 3 days. Makes 1 3/4 cups.
