Mediterranean Lentil Salad

Servings: 1-2

Prep time: 00:10

By: Ben McKeown

Every diet is different and affects every person in a slightly different way, but in recent decades, there has been some consensus that the healthiest diet you can choose is the Mediterranean diet.

When some people think of eating a meal in Italy, they immediately picture heaping servings of pizza and pasta, but that isn’t the case for this diet. What the Mediterranean diet refers to is the traditional eating habits of the region, which are quite different from the carb-heavy cuisine we associate with the region today.

50 years ago, studies found that people in the Mediterranean region had some of the lowest levels of chronic disease in the world, as well as one of the longest life expectancy rates, despite lacking access to overly advanced medical services.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup cooked lentils (about 1/3 cup dry)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • juice and zest of half a lemon
  • 1/4 cup diced cucumber (about 1/3 of a large cucumber)
  • 4-6 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 2-3 basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 5-6 kalamata olives, sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Combine all ingredients and chill for about half an hour before serving!
