Lentil and Apple Salad

I like to use apple cider vinegar a lot in salad dressings, because it has so many health benefits.  Here is a super speedy but flavorful side salad you can whip up to go with things like roast chicken or burgers. 

Ingredients:
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 14 oz. can lentils, rinsed and drained
1 crisp apple, cored and chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped

Whisk together olive oil, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper.  Toss with lentils, apples, and celery.  Serve immediately.

 
This recipe was from a Woman's Day magazine a few months ago, and I modified it just slightly. 

Readers, have you tried any new recipes lately?

a blogger posted a 3-ingredient recipe for coffee ice cream and i've saved it but dared not make it (for fear i'd love it too much!)

Sounds so delicious and healthy! But it's not easy to find lentil and apple cider vinegar. Hope I can substitute with others.

Interesting about Apple Cider Vinegar, Lisa. I like Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. I'll have to try your suggestion! :)
