Currently, we are experiencing 1,000 degree days in Texas. Ok, maybe like 90 degrees….but it just seems like we went from beautiful weather to FIRE like overnight! Time for some summer-weather recipes, ya know? Like this Sun-Dried Tomato & Arugula Lentil Salad!
This delicious salad consists of possibly the best things on this planet. Sweet sun-dried tomatoes, creamy goat cheese (or vegan cheese), savory lentils, fresh arugula, spinach and tomatoes. All topped with a wholesome Vegan Turmeric Ginger Dressing! This one has really swept me off my feet, guyzzz.
Sun-Dried Tomato & Arugula Lentil Salad, you’re definitely going into my summer salad rotation!
…..not that I have much of a summer salad rotation….maybe more of a pizza and pasta rotation…..but whatev. What can I say? I’m not a salad girl. Pizza will always be chosen over salad (UHHHH healthy pizza, of course)! I know myself. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t still hope that one day I will have quite the summer salad rotation and it only further proves how amazing this Sun-Dried Tomato & Arugula Lentil Salad truly is. If I love it, you’ll love it! After all, it’s a lovable salad.
And umm….I kinda forgot to mention that this salad actually tastes like a delicious PIZZA. Yes, I know, pizza. SO EPIC!
P.S: if you are a salad girl, I need you to teach me thy ways.
Meanwhile, this salad was devoured in about 60 seconds flat at which point I realized I REALLY need to learn how to eat slower. But that’s beside the point. These sun-dried tomatoes paired with creamy goat cheese are too good to not be instantly devoured!
Also, THESE LENTILS! The best.
