We're stoked to be working with Jacqueline Alwill to create some delicious recipes - this salad is super simple to make, perfect for a side on a winter night and great saved for a crunchy salad lunch the next day! Green lentils are slightly smaller than a brown lentil and more delicate in flavour so they're a great combination with the salad.
