Feta-Cranberry Lentil Salad
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
This is a wonderful side dish/salad. The flavor is amazing. I am low sodium so I used goat cheese crumbles. You can serve it over greens and add poached chicken if you want more protein. The dressing is very tasty!
I also used fat free feta. This was great!
Just made this, used Olive oil, and Non-fat Feta cheese, came out to roughly 174 cal for 1/2 C. Going to try this over a green salad soon.
Yeah, this recipe is a keeper! The textures and flavors in this dish are amazing. Love the walnut- crunch, sweetness of cranberries, richness of the feta cheese, very unusual lentil dish for me- great. I will make this one again and again.
This recipe inspired me to play! Used cherries instead of cranberries, pecans instead of walnuts, and goat cheese instead of feta. Served on a bed of spinach with an extra drizzling of olive oil and sprinkling of sea salt. Served with a baguette. Great weeknight dinner (especially since the lentil mixture can be made ahead).
I first tried this about a year ago and since have made it frequently. Everyone I share it with are impressed and ask for the recipe.
