Lentil and Brown Rice Salad

For those of you who are trying to get that bod in swimsuit shape for the summer and love a hearty salad try this one! I seriously inhaled this one and it was a piece of cake to make. If you haven't been able to tell I've been trying to eat more plant based whole foods and share my recipes. I am feeling awesome and have had so much fun trying new fun ingredients. Even if you consider yourself a picky eater, I don't care it's worth the benefits to make healthier choices.


  • 1/2 cup green lentils (if you live near a trader joes they have precooked lentils that are cheap)
  • 1/2 cup brown rice (trader joes also has a brown rice medley that you store in the freezer and throw in the microwave for 3 min as is makes for quick prep for this meal)
  • 2 large carrots
  • radishes
  • handful of cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 ribs celery sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup currants or craisins
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 4 cups mixed greens or any other lettuce. I used mixed greens mixed with kale
  • Drizzle of balsalmic vinegar over the top


  1. Cook rice and lentils according to package directions. Set aside to cool. While the rice and lentils are cooking, prep the rest of your ingredients.
  2. Assemble all tossing
