Lentil Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Jump to recipe

I am bringing Lentils back, woohoo! (to my kitchen) I am rediscovering my love for whole grains and legums. I’ve came to the realization that it is a lot harder to stay away complelty from certain foods groups than to keep a nice heatly balance, one that is more sustainable.

Example A: Lentils. I didn’t grow up loving them, my mom used to fix them around Lent every year and that was about it. I ate them cause I had to but now I love them!! My 41 year old body is not the same thought, but if I eat them in moderation and drink a lot of water, I am good.

Lentil soup is one of my favorite soups but since we are having some lovely warm days in San Antonio, Tx. I made them into a crisp salad.

The lentils are coated with a Balsamic Vinaigrette. I diced red bell peppers, cucumbers, parsley and queso fresco. Mix everything together and you have a delicious, fresh, and tasty lentil salad. I hope you give it a try and enjoy it as much as I do.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
