Chicken Lentil Salad

Serves 2 | Serving Size: 2 cups
Total Time: 15 min | Prep: 5 min | Cook: 10 min
This delicious salad is great for lunch or dinner. You can make it fast if you have leftover chicken! We used the cooked chicken strips from Trader Joes.

1 cup of red lentils
2 cups of water
8 cups of assorted greens: bibb, arugula, basil, parsley
1 small cucumber, sliced
1 cup of tomatoes, sliced
1 tablespoon pistachios
1 tablespoon vinaigrette
1 tablespoon croutons
black pepper to taste
hot sauce to taste
Arrange the lettuce on a large shallow dinner plate or platter.

Cook the lentils together in the water until soft, about 5 to 10 minutes or follow the package instructions.

Mold the lentils in a small bowl and place on top of the salad. Top with chicken, veggies, dressing, nuts, and croutons.

Serve immediately.
Chef's Tips:
You can use other types of protein, veggies, and nuts.

The dressing we used was a balsamic vinaigrette but you can use any dressing or oil and vinegar. Use sparingly.
