Herby puy lentil salad

Eating lentils feels a very healthy and sensible thing to do, and with 3 weeks to go until I’m in my bikini in Ibiza I’m being as healthy as possible – no white bread or pasta, no potatoes and lots of veg.

So I bought some ready cooked puy lentils, put the whole packet in a big mixing bowl and added freshly chopped parsley, mint and coriander. Then I added some chopped veg – a red pepper, plum tomatoes, cucumber, sun dried tomatoes and olives. I added chopped feta for a bit of protein (is there protein in lentils anyway?) and seasoned with salt, pepper, a sprinkle of dried chilli flakes and mixed all together with a drop of olive oil.

The fresh herbs in this make it really tasty – especially the mint. I had the puy lentil salad for lunch at work with a handful of rocket.
