Lentil Tabbouleh

Tabbouleh salad is one of the most famous salads in the Middle Eastern Cuisine. The last 10 years this salad has gained its place in Greek Cuisine. I am suggesting a different kind of a tabbouleh salad not with bulgur but with lentils. I hope you like it!


1 cup thin lentils
1 bunch parsley chopped
½ cup  fresh mint chopped
1 tomato cut into little pieces (no seeds)
1 onion, finely chopped
½ red peppers chopped 
½ cup  of cucumber  cut into small pieces

For the dressing

1 clove crushed garlic
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoon red vinegar
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
Salt and pepper

How to make

Put the lentils in cold water and boil for 10 minutes (count the time from the moment the water starts  to boil) over medium heat.
Drain and rinse the lentils, add fresh water to the pot, add the lentils with one bay leaf and let them simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain them and set them aside.
Place in a salad bowl all the ingredients and toss.
Whisk the dressing in a shaker or a cup and drizzle on top of the salad.

Have a great weekend!
