Meal Prep: Lentil Pea Salad

This salad is so great to bring to a summer bbq or make ahead and eat throughout the week because it keeps so well and doesn’t get soggy. In fact it might just get better the next day! This salad is even easier to make if you head to Trader Joe’s salad section (not an ad). They have lentils already cooked and english peas already shelled. Meaning all you have to do is warm up the fresh peas and prep your veggies. It really can’t get easier than that!

Rinse and drain cooked lentils until the water runs clear. Add peas, lentils, carrot, onion, lemon juice, vinegar and olive oil to a large bowl. Toss to coat. Add salt to taste.
