Introduction

I needed more protein and fiber in my nutrition plan and this takes care of BOTH - plus it's delicious! The curry powder gives it pizzaz :-) Terrific make-ahead lunches for a week!

Ingredients

    2.5 cup Lentils, cooked
    1 cup, chopped Onions, raw
    1 cup, diced Celery, raw
    .5 cup (not packed) Raisins
    1 cup, quartered or chopped Apples, fresh with skin
    .5 cup Mayonnaise, regular (mayo)
    .5 cup Sour Cream
    1 tsp Salt
    .5 tsp Pepper, black
    1 tsp Curry powder

Directions

1cup dry lentils rinsed and cooked in 3 cups water for 18 minutes-yields 2.5 cups lentils. Drain - let cool. When chopping apple(s) soak them in lemon water-then drain. The lemon water adds an extra flavor dimension plus preserves the color of the apples. Add onions, celery, apples, raisins to the lentils. Mix mayonnaise, sour cream & seasonings. Pour over lentil mixture & refrigerate for several hours.
I prepped veggies & apples the night before; cook the lentils the next morning(or the next evening after getting home from work...drain & let cool for an hour or so) then mix everything together.
Plain yogurt can be substituted for sour cream.
