The other day when a friend told me about this easy lentil-tomato salad, I was slightly skeptical. I knew lentil is high in protein and rather healthy for us, but it was not really high on my list of must eat. Anyhoo, after trying this salad for myself, I am hooked on this easy salad. It is refreshing, delicious and just too easy to make.
I got a pack of ready-to-eat lentil and a jar of fresh Bruschetta sauce from Trader Joe's. Mix one part lentil to one part sauce. That is it!!! You can make this to pair with grilled meat or seafood.
To make fresh tomato sauce:
Just add diced tomato cubes, finely minced garlic and basil into a bow and mix with olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let the mixture rest and chill in fridge for a couple of hours to let flavor develop. I have not made this from scratch before but will in the near future.
