Lentil Salsa

This easy, tasty salsa gets an added protein boost from heart-healthy lentils.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium tomatoes, finely diced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) finely chopped onion
  • 1 whole jalapeno, finely diced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) cooked green lentils
  • 2 Tbsp (25 mL) finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) lime juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt

Directions

In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, lentils, cilantro, vinegar, lime juice, garlic and salt. Mix well. Cover and chill 2 to 3 hours. Serve at room temperature with crackers or tortilla chips.

Tips

  • For a less spicy salsa, use ¼ – ½ cup (60 – 125 mL) chopped green, orange or yellow pepper instead of the jalapeno pepper.
  • You can use regular vinegar if you don’t have red wine vinegar.
