|Lentil Salad with Beets and Balsamic Vinaigrette|
I grew up with beets but lentils are a different story. My first taste of lentils was in my early twenties. I was a vegetarian and living on my own. I went to a Greek restaurant with a friend and had lentils with assorted beans piled high on pita bread with lettuce and tomatoes. Been a fan ever since. I especially enjoy them in a salad, the texture is wonderful.
The balsamic vinaigrette is what really brought this salad to life, delicious as is or you could add red onions, feta cheese, walnuts and/or spring lettuce. Enjoy!
