Lunch/Dinner

Lentil Salad with Vegetables & Goats Cheese

This is one of my favourite Lunch time Recipes as it’s super easy to make and, especially during the Winter months, I do prefer something warm for Lunch. The Balsamic Vinegar really brings the Lentils into the limelight, as I know they are often considerd a bit bland.
Give this dish a try, you will love it. Enjoy!
