About this recipe

Green beans lentil salad is easy, healthy, and filling. Lentils are delicious and perfect for creating a balanced and flavourful meal. They’re especially pleasurable in salads and soups and due to their high fibre content, represent an excellent choice for keeping you full.

You just can’t go wrong with lentils and their benefitsI love making healthy grain salads and this vegetarian salad is one of them. Remove the feta and you get a delicious vegan meal.

The most important step in making lentil salad is perfecting the cooking of the lentils so they maintain their shape and firm-tender bite. Be careful not to overcook them as they will become mushy. This salad along with my french lentil and pea salad will keep very well in the fridge for up to 4 days.
