These French Lentil Salad may not look enticing, but the deeply flavored tomato dressing makes this salad very tasty and satisfying. Charlene will not want anything else if there is a bowl of French Lentil Salad in her refrigerator.
These French Lentil Salad will keep for 5 days in the fridge. They are delicious warm or at room temperature. They make ideal side dish, pita filling, or a simple main when served on top of rice. Reheat them with some broth and chopped celery and carrot to make a simple lentil soup. What a versatile dish.
