Lentil Salad with Chimichurri Sauce

Recipe by  

"Steamed lentils mixed with a chimichurri sauce. This recipe, I discovered, is quite good in many ways. It is a favorite in our home on baked Yukon gold potatoes or stuffed in a whole wheat pita with sliced cucumbers. You will most likely find a favorite way to enjoy this healthy, high-fiber salad."

Directions

  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add lentils, cover, and steam, adding more water as needed, until tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer cooked lentils to a serving bowl.
  2. Blend oil, vinegar, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, and salt in a blender until well incorporated. Add parsley and cilantro; pulse only long enough to incorporate the herbs.
  3. Drizzle 3 tablespoons chimichurri sauce over lentils; add feta cheese to salad. Toss to evenly coat. Store remaining sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for another use.

I'm surprised . . . I'm not a big fan of lentils (my Italian hubby is though), and I really liked this! I scaled this back to 1 serving, as I had exactly 2 oz. of lentils to use up. I also used Argentinean Chimichurri (recipe also on this site) that I had left over from a cookout last weekend. I took the submitter's advice and served this with sliced cucumbers and grilled naan (as I didn't have any whole wheat pita bread). It made for a nice, healthy lunch!
