Quinoa & Beluga Lentil Salad

I haven’t put in much of a garden this year (yet), but we are about to be deluged with radishes. The arugula and cresses are also in their prime, so I’m taking every opportunity to enjoy homegrown salads while I can before the really hot weather arrives.

  • jalapeño
  • chives
  • parsley
  • radishes
  • celery leaves
  • red bell pepper
  • chopped asparagus
  • goji berries

The ingredients for the black lentils portion of the salad were:

  • jalapeño
  • spring onion
  • cilantro
  • harissa paste
  • lime juice
