Lentil and Chicken salad
Why I Love This Recipe
Lentils are a Super Food. They're high in essentials and are second only to Soybeans as far as having the most complete proteins in the vegetable kingdom. Other legumes fall far behind.
I serve this cold or room temperature. I'm not sure how the cucumbers would fare if the lentils were hot. It's even better the next day.
