I had this for dinner last night – and packed up the leftovers for lunch today – and I was able to get my protein fix through the lentils that I needed after my workout along with some great veggies. You could add in or substitute the lentils for grilled chicken or another protein as I am sure it would be very tasty! The vinaigrette was delicious, however, it may be acidic for some and you should be able to adjust ingredients to fit your palate.

Not a difficult one and easy to throw together when you have a lot to get done in an evening. Hope you all have a great day :).
