I have the best intentions on Mondays: get enough exercise, eat healthier, get enough sleep and stop sweating the small stuff. By Monday evening most of these have blown out the window, but today at least I know I’ve got a healthy dinner sorted with this lentil salad with bacon, feta and mint. Here’s to new week’s resolutions!
500 ml cooked brown lentils
250 g bacon
Handful of fresh mint
Handful of fresh parsley
Handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
Handful of calamata olives
1 red onion, sliced
1 yellow pepper, diced
1 round of feta, cubed
- Grill the bacon in the oven at 180 degrees for about twenty minutes, or until crispy. Set aside to cool.
- Arrange the lentils, mint and parsley in a salad bow and top with the tomatoes, olives, onion, yellow pepper and feta cheese.
- Serve with the grilled bacon and balsamic vinegar.
