Lentil Salad with Feta Recipe
From my super easy and healthy recipes menu: lentil salad with feta, those who chose vegan lifestyle, can skip the feta, this salad will still taste amazing.
This is the food I’d eat everyday and never get tired. This is something you can improvise, use your imagination and play with spices and ingredients.
I like to keep my lentil salad quite simple, using minimum amount of spices. I’ll share the recipe, but keep in mind that good food is about result of a bright imagination and go from there
Hope many will give it a try and like it.
Happy, healthy cooking !
