Fast-cooking red lentils teamed up with frozen green peas to make this hearty fiber-rich salad. It makes for a healthy and satisfying lunch with its bright colours and chewy yet tender texture. It turned out that I didn’t touch any chicken breast leftover, so just leave it out if you haven’t got any leftover.

Ingredients

  • SaladDressing
  • 200 g Dried red lentils
  • 80 g Frozen green peas
  • 1 Small yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 400 ml Vegetable stock
  • 1 Baby carrot, thinly sliced
  • 2 Cherry radishes, cut into wedges
  • 2 Strawberries, cut into wedges
  • A handful of salad leaves
  • Pan-seared thyme chicken breast leftover, optional
  • 5 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 3 tsp Honey
  • 5 tbsp Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Spread the red lentils out on a work surface and pick out any pebbles, debris, or damaged lentils. Rinse lentils until the water runs clear. Finely chop the onion.
