Author Notes: Lentils are a good source of protein for a vegetarian and they are hearty/healthy. They have great texture (depending on how long you cook them) and can be dressed with pretty much any flavor that you like! This is a quick and simple salad that you can do lots with. Use it as a base and add in your favorite ingredient, or simply enjoy this as is!Always A Twist

Serves: 4

Lentil and Chickpea Salad Ingredients

  • 1 cup green lentils, cooked (+ 2 garlic cloves)
  • 1 15 oz. can chickpeas, drained and washed
  • 6-7 pieces radishes, sliced thin and chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped

Sumac/Lemon Dressing

  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon champagne vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced fine
  • 1 teaspoon Sumac berries
  • 3 pinches salt
  • 2 pinches pepper
  1. For the dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk together all ingredients until well combined.
  2. Cook lentils according to package but add in my twist for some extra flavor: while cooking add 2 slightly mashed garlic cloves to the water (this adds a hint of flavor to the lentils). Once lentils are cooked, allow to cool.
  3. Mix lentils, chickpeas, radishes and herbs with dressing. Toss to combine.
  4. Optional: This tastes great with some feta and cherry tomatoes mixed in!
