Lentil salad

This is THE barbecue side dish of 2019. A new favorite was born. Instead of steamed vegetables and the typical wedges fresh out from the oven, there is finally a newly discovered recipe that tastes excellently with grilled meat. Mung lentils, have you ever heard of it? These kind of lentils are especially used in ayurvedic cuisine. Today, I have combined them with raw vegetables, courgettes and rocket sprouts. A simple dressing of olive oil and pear balsamic vinegar or alternatively other white balsamic vinegar makes the salad really fresh. Great, isn’t it?

Try it out and have fun with this recipe,
