Blogging Marathon# 54: Week 4/ Day 1
Theme: Lentils — 3 Ways
Dish: Greek Lentil Salad
My theme for this week’s blogging marathon is ‘Lentils — 3 ways’. Valli wants us to use 3 different lentils in 3 different ways, so for the next 3 days I have some interesting dishes using lentils.
For the first day, I made a Greek Lentil salad using Puy or French Lentils. These tiny lentils cook up in about 25~30 minutes and do not need to be pre-soaked. So it is really quick and easy to make this salad. Recipe is from Vegetarian Times magazine.
This salad is mild tasting, but you can easily spice or jazz it up by adding more lemon juice, more herbs and may be some olives. I liked it just as is because it is light and refreshing, but filling at the same time. It is great to pack for lunch or a picnic.
