Moroccan Monday: Salad

Another recipe from Roderick Dixon’s Afrikkalainen keittokirja (African Cookbook). I’m not 100% sure, but I think it has been only available in Finnish and now it’s sold out. Lentils make this salad a protein rich side dish, and tomatoes, lemon juice and cilantro bring nice freshness to the salad. You can make this salad several hours in advance, because it just gets better if you let it sit in the fridge.


Moroccan Lentil Salad

2 dl lentils
2-3 tomatoes, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp paprika
3 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp chopped cilantro

Boil the lentils until soft. Drain. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and serve.
