10-Minute Curried Lentil Salad Recipe: This Healthy, Low-Sodium Recipe Tastes Amazing by Melissa Vickers

10-Minute Curried Lentil Salad Recipe: This Healthy, Low-Sodium Recipe Tastes Amazing

After a recent health scare, my husband and I have doubled down on our efforts to eat healthier – low to no salt, low fat, lots of vegetables. This curried lentil salad recipe appeared in my inbox and looked like it would fit our new parameters, especially if we left out the salt.

Not only is this 10-minute, no-cook curried lentil salad recipe full of flavor, it's healthy, too! Lentils are a nutrient-rich ingredient with many health benefits. Lentils are high in fiber, protein and other vitamins.

Lentils are the main stars of this salad recipe, along with red onion, red pepper, dried cranberries, lemon juice and zest, and a host of spices including curry and cumin. It comes together in 10 minutes or less (unless you choose to use cooked lentils rather than canned).

Serve this quick and easy cold lentil salad as a side dish with dinner, as a vegetarian dinner or for a healthy lunch.
