French Lentil Salad
Cook time
Total time
A wonderfully healthy and simple lentil salad, with refreshing endive and sweet hazelnuts.
Serves: 2
  • 1 cup French green lentils
  • 1.5 cups water
  • ⅓ cup hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 head of Belgian red endive, thinly sliced
  • For the dressing:
  • 3 tablespoons hazelnut oil or olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1.5 teaspoons honey
  • Pinch of salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Add the lentils and water to a medium pot. Cover the pot and cook on medium until all of the water has absorbed, about 15-20 minutes. The lentils should be soft but still have their shape.
  2. In the meantime, whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
  3. Once the lentils are finished, add the hazelnuts, endive and dressing and toss well. Season with additional salt and pepper, and serve either warm or cold.
