Clean Eating Recipe – Judy’s Lentil Salad

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



Feta cheese






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.

  1. Yum and I think it would keep in the fridge for several days. Nice to have on hand with lunches.

  2. This looks good! I’m not really sure if we have lentils over here, I have not had lentils ever since I think! But after a quick research, I learned that we have something similar called mung beans, I may give it a try for this recipe. 🙂
