Lentil Salad with Cauliflower and Olives
Black lentils are an excellent choice to use in salads because they have a thicker skin and do not disintegrate as easily as some other lentil varieties do. If you can not find black lentils, French lentils can be substituted. Be careful not to overcook them and drain them and allow them to cool in a thin layer so they do not overcook and turn to mush. I like to serve this salad with roasted chicken or fish for a satisfying dinner, or a poached egg for a nourishing breakfast.
