This would make a refreshing and filling lunch any day of the week, or you could serve it up as a side salad with any of the mains on the blog. If you’re really feeling creative, try it stuffed with other faves in wraps and taco shells. I actually made some and packed it up for a picnic too along with some other easy ideas you can find here.

This lentil apple slaw is a versatile recipe just waiting for you to take it on an adventure!
