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!)

Recipe: Sweet Potato and Lentil Salad

This is one of those salads that is hearty enough to be a meal all by itself, without leaving you feeling sluggish and snoozy afterwards. It’s full of protein from the lentils, Vitamin A and C from the sweet potato and is a little bit fancy thanks to the addition of goats cheese! You can dress this salad in pretty much whatever dressing you like best – I went with a simple lemon juice and dijon mustard dressing, but seeded mustard, a tahini dressing or even an apple cider vinegar dressing would work well too. Make it your own!
