Clean eating definitely does not mean Yucky eating. I had this while visiting home (Minnesota) and it was DELICIOUS. This would be a great side to bring to a BBQ, or other function – that is really tasty, and you could stay on your clean eating meal plan.
1 bag of lentils
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 cups diced celery (I do not like celery, so I didn’t put it in this recipe)
1/2 cup diced red pepper (I used green here)
1/2 cup diced red onion (I used a yellow sweet onion)
1 small diced tomato
1 jalapeno diced finely (optional)
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
Rinse – making sure to take out small stones. Boil in salt water for 20 minutes, drain and set aside and cool.
Dice all finely and add to the lentils when cool.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Add fresh squeezed lemon juice and Extra-Virgin Olive Oil and toss. Add Feta Cheese and Basil prior to serving.
Note: I like my food spicy, so I added 1 jalapeno finely diced.
