Lentils are wonderful food for you, but in my house, no one likes to eat just plain lentils except me. Which means I have to come up with a lot of interesting ways to prepare them . . . including this very tasty lentil salad.
The lentils and sesame seeds add protein to the dish, while the tomatoes give you the veggie serving for the meal, along with the lettuce. Plus, it’s totally delicious! Serve as a side dish or as the main meal . . . just keep in mind that you’ll need to double the recipe to give four people a main course.

Juice of one lime (about 1 Tblsp.)

Serve atop a lettuce leaf and garnish with plenty of sesame seeds.Print or share this recipe using the icons above!
