French green lentils, rinsed and drained
1 (15 ounce) can
dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14 ounce) can
chopped fresh parsley, or to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste
An interesting flavour and texture mixing kidney beans, corn and lentils. I cooked the lentils in a pressure cooker for 10 minutes instead of in a saucepan as directed. I don't know what balsamic vinaigrette is, so I just used balsamic vinegar. I will leave out the sugar the next time. Make sure the lentils are al dente to achieve a nice balance of texture as well as flavour. I used French Green Puy lentils but imagine that brown lentils would work just as well here, making it even cheaper lentil salad. :-)Thank you kelly for your recipe.
