Serves: 4-6
  • 1 lb cooked lentils
  • 2 tbsp capers, chopped (add in some caper juice for a little extra salty zing!)
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • ¼ onion, diced
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp salt and pepper
  • juice and zest from 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp smoked balsamic vinegar or regular balsamic vinegar
  1. Combine the lentils, capers, carrots and onions in a large bowling, stirring to combine.
  2. In a separate smaller bowl whisk together the thyme, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice and zest, olive oil and vinegar. Drizzle over lentil mixture and allow to sit for at least 30-60 mins. Best when made the night before!
