Mediterranean Lentil Salad (Mujadara)


I am a big fan of Green Cuisine, whenever I like to eat healthy food I prefer to go with Mediterranean dishes. When I was in North Carolina I used to visit Aladin and Greek Fiesta for Mediterranean food, surprisingly I loved lentil salad with lot of hummus and salad dressings. Aladin serves one of the best Salads in town. Recently, I tried to made it at home. As this was my first time making Lentil salad at home I bought ready tin for lentils, prepared hummus with little garlic and chopped salad. It came out so well so, thought to share this recipe with you guys.



1 cup cooked Brown Rice

For Salad:

1 can Lentil of your choice

1- roughly chopped tomatoes

1 cup shredded lettuce

1/4 cup chopped onions

For Hummus:

1 cup boiled garbanzo Beans

12 tbs Olive oil

Salt to taste

2-3 cloves of Garlic

-Grind everything in a mixture according to your consistency, Add olive oil if needed for required consistency

For Dressing:

4-5 tbs Olive Oil

Pinch of Basil Leaves( Dried or fresh)

1/2 tsp Garlic powder

1/2 tsp Back Pepper

1 tsp Vinegar

pinch of chilli flakes

-Mix everything vigorously in a bowl.


In a plate put lentils, rice and add chopped salad on top of it.

Add hummus onto Salad and add salad dressing over the preparation. And Lentil Salad is ready.


Please, Do it a try I am sure you will love it.
