Did you know, that the name beluga lentils comes from the same-named caviar? This is because they look like the eggs of a sturgeon. But that just by the way. There are no harmed animals on this site ?.
This salads with beluga lentils is very delicious. It is light and fresh and you can make it super quick. Perfect for spring or summer.
To get that fresh taste, I used cucumber, tomato and parsley. Add the avocado for tenderness and substance and the lentils are full of protein, iron and other good stuff for wellbeing.
As I side I recommend a freshly baked baguette. This is how I dine on hot days.
