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
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
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
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.
