Warm Winter Salad
We made this as a side for the holidays and can be made with or without the diced soy ham. The soy ham slices give the salad a bit of a smoky flavor but would be just as tasty without.
Warm Lentil Salad with Vegan Dijon Cream
Adapted Cooking Light recipe
1 cup dried lentils
1/2 cup vegan sour cream
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons nut or soy milk
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 package soy ham sliced (diced) – optional
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped red onion
Place the lentils in a large saucepan, and cover with water to 2 inches above lentils. Bring lentils to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until tender. Drain well.
Combine vegan sour cream and next 5 ingredients (vegan sour cream through paper) in a large bowl. Add lentils, soy ham, celery and onion, and toss well.
Yield 4 servings about 1 & 1/3 cups each.
