Lentil Dill Salad

Fresh herbs make everything taste better. This easy, delicious, nutritionally dense salad is no exception! It tastes fantastic right after it’s been mixed together. The fresh dill and fresh chives are perfectly paired with lemon juice, a hint of dijon and olive oil. It’s almost too easy to eat this healthy. This salad is great…

Herbed Bean Salad with Garlic Toast

There’s a few things I really love… fresh herbs, beans, and garlic toast!  This recipe combines all of them for a seamlessly delicious meal.  I love the contrast between the warm, crisped garlic toast, and the cool, fresh bean salad.  The celery brings some crunch, and the sherry vinegar brings the acidity.  At once, this…
