Grapes and Brown Lentils Salad
Sometimes certain recipes are as easy as 1-2-3 and this grape and lentils salad is one of such recipe. Other than cooking the lentils till they are just tender (which requires almost no attention), you just need to toss in desired vegetables or fruits and lentil salad will be ready to rock.

Lentils also happen to be a powerhouse of nutrition - good source of proteins and gluten free, a handful of lentils are perfect for rounding out a soup or making a salad just a little more filling.

I have used Brown lentils for this salad because they hold their shape well after cooking. So think of them for soups, salads and side dishes. Try combining various flavor combination with brown lentil as neutral base like feta, cucumber and lentils or kimchi, radish, onion and lentils; dress with some lemony dressing and salad is served. In my home, we love lentil salads for lunch – filling, wholesome and satisfying.
