|Classic Lentil Salad with Carrots, Lemon Zest, Thyme, and Italian Parsley|
This week’s French Fridays with Dorie challenge was for Lentil, Lemon, and Tuna Salad which combines two recipes – the first for French Lentils, the second for the salad. I have to admit to completing only the first part of the assignment…and making the Classic Lentil Salad in the Bonne Idee.
I made the vinaigrette with Walnut Oil and stirred in minced Italian parsley, shredded carrots,lemon zest, and fresh thyme from my garden. The warm lentil salad surpassed all of my expectations. It had great texture and flavor. This is a versatile salad that would work well as a platform for a variety of flavors. I’ll definitely make it again!
