Avocado, Mango & Strawberry Lentil Salad


Internet, it's been a long time! The huz and I took three weeks off, traveled to five European countries, ate a lot of delicious food and had a fabulous time. We are trying our best to fight jet leg and adjust to reality again! I'll share some images from our trip and the incredible food we ate in some future posts.

In the meantime, Vancouver is being good to us and the sun is shining. I love this time of the year!

This salad was so easy to make and is perfect for a warm summer night. I had purchased some precooked lentils (from Trader Joe's) that I put into a salad bowl and added chopped avocado, mango and strawberries. I drizzled a couple tablespoons of balsamic vinegar on the salad and tossed it lightly until everything was nicely coated.

I highly recommend this salad after you get your fix of daily vitamin D! I hope you've been having a great summer!
