Puy Lentil & Goats Cheese Salad
10 min Prep, 15 min Cook
Summer is coming and salad season is upon us! I just love eating beautiful salads like this which are delicious, filling AND nourishing. The puy lentils work really well in this, being one of the most flavourful lentils and keeping their nice shape and texture, once cooked. These protein packed lentils are also low in fat as well as high in soluble fibre (keeping your heart and digestive system happy) and other nutrients such as magnesium, iron, calcium and zinc, to name just a few. So with all the lovely vegetables and a little goats cheese in this beautiful salad, this makes for a super healthy and super exciting meal. I hope you love it as much much as I do.

Meanwhile, add all the remaining salad ingredients, except the goats cheese, to one large bowl and mix well.
Once the squash and tomatoes are cooled, add the the salad bowl and mix well.
Plate the salads then top with the goats cheese.
