Lentil and Ham Salad

Overdid it on the sugar this Halloween?

Surprisingly, I didn’t eat any sweets. My birthday, however, was a different story (waaay too many birthday cakes). And so…

time for a detox salad!

Simple, yet tasty and filling 🙂

Lentil and Ham Salad

Lentil and Ham Salad

Ingredients: 

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp minced garlic

pepper

1 and 1/2 cups precooked ham, cubed

1 cup brown lentils

1 head romaine lettuce, shredded with kitchen shears

2 cups fresh spinach leaves

3 cups of broccoli, chopped into florets (before steaming)

1/4 cup fresh red rubin basil, shredded (regular basil works too)

1/2 onion, finely chopped

Directions: 

In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, oil, garlic, and pepper. Place ham in a container and drizzle soy sauce mixture over it. Place in fridge and let sit for at least 1 hour.

Meanwhile, pick over and rinse lentils. Cook lentils according to box instructions. Set aside and let cool.

In a serving bowl, combine lettuce, spinach, steamed broccoli, basil, and onions. Add in lentils. Top with ham and soy sauce mixture. Toss altogether before serving.
