Pear and Lentil Salad

Pear and Lentil Salad Pear and Lentil Salad

Honestly, I don’t love making a salad. I’d rather order one or grab one of those salad kits from Trader Joe’s and call it a day 😉 But there is something about a homemade dressing that is SO good. This Pear and Lentil Salad is honestly one of the few I actually make. Minimal chopping required, and the dressing ingredients can be thrown into a mason jar! And this dressing is everythingggg! Make a personal portion or big salad for a group dinner. Oh, and get the pre-cooked lentils from Trader Joe’s. Makes things way easier. 🙂
