I love the idea of this salad as a side with other course, some meats or even Quorn.

I love lentil salads, they are both healthy and delicious. Lentils are particularly rich in fiber, lean protein and iron. This fresh salad makes use of canned lentils, a cupboard staple. I use lentil though out  the year, as a base for salads in the summer and for hearty stews in the winter. Lentils have a mild taste and they take on a delicious flavour in this salad when combined with tomatoes, cucumber, olives and loads of fresh herbs. This salad is perfect as a take- along lunch or light dinner.
