Fennel, Feta & Green Lentil Salad

20141017_204902

Last night I made my (in)famous beer chicken and wanted to serve it with a quick side salad. I rummaged through my fridge and found some fennel hanging around. My initial plan was to grill up the fennel, but another quick rummage later, I found an old can of green lentils. So I thought I’d put them together to see if it’ll work in a salad and it was brilliant! Feel free to add some fresh herbs, I didn’t have any so I skipped them.

You’ll need:

  • 1 can green lentils (rinsed and drained)
  • 2 fennel bulbs (chopped finely)
  • 1 tomato (de-seeded and chopped finely)
  • 1 small red onion (chopped finely)
  • 1 clove garlic (peeled and chopped finely)
  • 100g feta cheese (crumbled)
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic glaze
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Method:

Mix all ingredients, taste to check seasoning. Serve either at room temperature or chilled. Enjoy!
