Happy Meatless Monday.
Over the weekend I wanted to create an easy salad that we could have in the fridge and enjoy at our leisure. We had a busy weekend planned and I knew I wouldn’t want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen. I modeled it after a store bought salad that I had found the previous week.
I modified my version to be sodium and oil free. In the process I also made it hassle free. This is going to be a new staple in our fridge for days that are filled with more sunshine and play time than kitchen time.

2 C cooked brown lentils
1 C cooked brown rice
1/2 C sun-dried tomatoes (dry, not packed in oil)
2 C parsley
2/3 C fresh squeezed lemon juice
Make it Happen
~Put parsley and sun-dried tomatoes in a food processor and pulse until it is in small pieces.
This dish is hearty and filling while still being light. It is an easy meatless meal to have in your fridge for lunch, dinner or a snack. I love that the flavor in this salad is vibrant without using added spices. I have a tendency to grab as many spices as I can get my hands on so it feels refreshing to create a dish that is flavored simply and simply flavorful.
Have a delicious day.
