Black Lentil and Couscous Salad
There’s no lettuce in sight for this salad, but it still has great crunch from flaked almonds, sweetness from plump raisins, warmth from paprika and cumin and brightness from the fresh herbs and orange flavored dressing. The addition of pre-cooked black lentils literally makes this a salad you can put together in 15 minutes. It’s just as good at room temperature as it is hot, and you can eat it as a side dish or a main dish. It’s packed with a variety of ingredients that fill almost every slot for the types of foods you should consume in respectable amounts on a daily basis. How many more reasons do you need to leave your lettuce in the fridge and move on to couscous?
