  1. That looks really pretty! I love a good salad. Not sure that I have ever tried a lentil salad, but I would love to try this one.

  2. This salad is packed with so much of the good stuff! Anything that makes eating a healthier a lunch a little bit easier, i am down for!

  3. I have never had a salad with lentils in it. I am into the weekly prep thing, so this would be a great option for that.

    I haven’t tried it yet, but it sure would be great on the go lunch idea. My sister always has food in the car when traveling, she calls them car picnic. This would be great for that.
