Lentil salad with asiago and artichoke

Asiago, Artichoke, & Lentil Salad

What can I say? I’m a little obsessed with lentils ever since I went on the lentil tour of Western Canada. By the way, you can get loads of great lentil recipes on the Lentils Canada website. This recipe is great because it uses one of my favourite cheeses – asiago!

 

Not only that, it’s super easy to make especially if you use canned lentils. Just rinse well for 1 minute and you’ll reduce the sodium by 50% or more. A perfect quick meal after a long day when time is tight and the last thing you want to is cook!
