Chill time     : 1 hour
Total Time    : 30 mins

Servings: 8 served as a side

INGREDIENTS

·         2 cups dry lentils
·         1 tsp salt
·         2 medium apples chopped
·         1 tbsp lemon juice
·         1/4 cup dried cranberries
·         1/2 cup pepitas roasted
·         2-3 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
·         1 tbsp fresh rosemary chopped
·         2-3 stalks celery chopped
·         apple sage dressing to preference



INSTRUCTIONS

1.   Cook the lentils, with the salt, according to the package instructions. Make sure you don't overcook them, you just want them to be tender. I check every minute or two toward the end of the cooking time.
2.   In the meantime, chop up your apples and toss them in a bowl with the lemon juice. Store in the fridge for now.
3.   When the lentils are done, drain them and rinse with cool water to stop the cooking process. Stick them in the fridge to cool.
4. Once cooled, toss the lentils with the apples and the remaining ingredients. Toss with the dressing (add as much as you want, this is totally based on preference.)
5.   Let the salad sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. This will allow all the flavors to come together.
6.   Serve as is, or on a bed of greens like kale or arugula.
