Trader Joe’s has already prepared lentils that are perfect for this meal.


  • 1 cup French green lentils
  • 1/2 head radicchio, sliced thin and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of shallots, finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup of carrots. Peeled and grated
  • 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons of roughly chopped parsley and basil
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh ground pepper


  1. Place lentils in a medium size saucepan, and cover with about three inches of filtered water and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce to a simmer and cook until just tender about 20-30 minutes, do not overcook or they will become mushy (add more water if necessary).
  3. Drain lentils.
  4. Toss lentils with red wine vinegar, sea salt and fresh ground pepper and let sit for 5 minutes.
  5. Toss with olive oil, shallots, radicchio, radishes and fresh herbs. Taste and adjust seasoning for flavor.

This servers about 4 and can be served chilled or room temperature.
