Lentil Salad




  • 1 Tbsp Dijon or other mustard (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp any wine or sherry vinegar
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt, plus more to taste
  • Black pepper to taste (optional)
  • 4 cups cooked or canned lentils or any other beans, drained
  • 3 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped carrots or radishes
  • 1 cup chopped celery or fennel
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley or dill (other seasonings would work as well)


Put the mustard, vinegar, oil, and salt and a sprinkle of pepper in a large bowl. Add 2 Tbsp of water and whist until well combined.
Add all of the remaining ingredients to the bowl and toss until coated with dressing. Taste and adjust the seasoning, and serve. (to make the salad ahead: combine everything except the tomatoes and parsley; cover and refrigerate for up to a day, and let it come back to room temperature before serving.)
