Healthy Lentil Salad

 A very delicious healthy and filling salad good at any time of the day. This lentil salad idea is inspired from the recipes of  two good friends of mine Jagruti and Shobha who are both wonderful food bloggers and very beautiful ladies inside out......you can check the delicious varieties of this recipe and many other mouthwatering dishes in their blogs. Inspired from them I just twisted little bit and made my version and it comes out awesomely delicious. Two toasted brown bread ...one apple and a bowl of yummy healthy lentil salad what more can you ask for to enjoy a filling breakfast.
