Trader Joe’s does it again with their steamed, ready-to-eat lentils. This definitely isn’t a new product, I’m just late to the game and bummed I’ve been missing out on such deliciousness this whole time. This lentil salad is great as a meal, a side, a snack or on top of a salad. It has a summery feel to it because it’s a cold salad and because of the lime flavor, BUT thanks to climate change who can even keep track of what season we’re in?? The best part about this recipe….it takes about 5 minutes to make!
Easy Cold Lentil Salad
Trader Joe’s steamed lentils (1 box)
1/2-1/3 cup chopped scallions (depending on how big of a scallion fan you are)
1/3 cup diced tomatoes
1/3 cup chopped cucumber
juice from 1 lime
salt / pepper / garlic to taste
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well (unless you’re trying to go for aesthetics for blogs and or social media then mix everything but the cucumbers together and then carefully place chopped cuc’s in a pile in the middle).
