Just 5 minutes and 4 ingredients (or less!) is all it takes for this flavor-packed lentil tomato salad.
I have been making it for years and always thought it was too simple for the site.
But quick and easy is what it's all about here, and after devouring another batch I knew I had to share.
This lentil tomato salad started as something I quickly threw together for a road trip. We wanted some healthy plant-based goodness to keep us energized for driving.
But I have also made it many times without the chives so I left them optional, along with the fresh herbs.
It is so tangy, flavorful, and delicious. Plus there are so many variations you can try based on your preference.
