Easy Weeknight Dinner: Mexican Lentil Salad

Do you ever make a vegetarian meal expecting average then find yourself surprised with the results? That’s what happened this week when I decided to try Designer Bags & Dirty Diaper’s Lentil Taco Salad. I wanted to try something that would be “clean” yet satisfying and this fit the bill. Though I altered it slightly, here’s how you can make your own.


What You’ll Need:

2 Heads Romaine Lettuce

1 Pint Cherry Tomatoes

1/2 Red Onion, Diced Finely

1 Avocado, Sliced

1 can yellow or white corn

1 Bag dried lentils

Taco Seasoning, to taste

Sweet Potato Ribbons

Shredded Cheese of Your Choice

Trader Joe’s Green Goddess Dressing

To Make:

  1. Cook the lentils according to package with as much or as little taco seasoning as you’d like.
  2. Roast sweet potato ribbons covered lightly in olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic salt on 425 for approximately 25 min.
  3. Dice romaine, cherry tomatoes, and red onion. Assemble adding corn, cheese and avocado. Top with sweet potatoes, lentils, and dressing.

Delicious, Healthy, and Satisfying!
