Lunch Play Date: Lentil, Carrot, Celery & Scallion Salad
Posted May 23 2013 6:09pm
A recipe! I know…crazy.
We had a playdate today. I always try to throw together some type of lunch when I do. I really enjoy making food for other people, so any chance I get I kind of jump at it!
I didn’t have that much time and I had made lentils last night, so I figured that would be perfect to go with a green salad.
The salad I put together was:
butter lettuce & mixed spring greens
baked balsamic chicken (marinated it in equal parts olive oil & balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper & garlic powder, baked for 20 minutes, flipping halfway at 350 degrees)
Super easy, delicious green salad. I made a simple dressing with fresh garlic, balsamic, extra virgin olive oil, S & P.
Lentil, Carrot, Celery & Scallion Salad
1 cup dry lentils (cooked as per instructions. I cooked mine in rice maker.)
3/4 cup chopped carrots
1/4 cup chopped scallions (not packed in)
3-4 stalks celery, chopped
1 tbs dried parsley
1-2 tbs red wine vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
After cooking the lentils, let them cool completely. Combine lentils, carrots, celery and scallions. Mix to combine. Add in 1 tbs red wine vinegar, parsley and salt and pepper. Mix together. Taste to see if you need to add more vinegar. Adjust salt and pepper according to taste.
Off to start bedtime routine and watch Nurse Jackie! Have a great night!
