Recipe: Pomegranate & Feta Lentil Salad

After making a couple of batches of my Pomegranate & Mint Iced Tea I decided it was time to use pomegranate in a salad again, and had my heart set on this lentil concoction. It almost wasn’t to be as all of a sudden I struggled to find pomegranates anywhere, but I refused to give up and after visiting five separate fruit & vege shops (which is no mean feat when you walk everywhere!) I finally got my hands on some more of the bright coloured beauties and could whip up this salad! Thankfully it was as delicious as I had hoped and it was definitely worth the effort to find the pomegranate!

Whilst my balcony garden is still in its infancy I am loving being able to pick herbs straight off the balcony to add to my salads – so fragrant, fresh and full of flavour. Plus, I only have to pick what I need to use!
