Lentil Avocado Salad from Le Pain Quotidien


Loved this recipe at Le Pain Quotidien. Find more on the dressing (and photo credit) at


1 cup Arugula
1/2 cup Frisee or other Greens
1/2 cup Lentils, cooked
1/2 cup Chickpeas, cooked
1/4 Cucumber, julienned
2 Radishes, sliced
1 small Tomato, diced
1/2 cup Fennel, shaved
1/2 Carrot, shredded
1/2 Avocado, diced
1 tablespoon Scallions
1/4 teaspoon Flax Seeds
Sea Salt & Pepper
Lemon wedge
Parsley Sprig
Prepared Pesto Vinaigrette (see below)

Drizzle half the vinaigrette over the greens on a serving plate.  In a mixing bowl add lentil, shredded carrots, sliced fennel, julienned cucumbers, diced scallions, julienned radishes, diced tomato and chickpeas. Chop one quarter of an avocado into 1/2 inch pieces.  Pile components of mixing bowl in the center of the plate. Add flax seeds and two twists of sea salt and black pepper over the salad. Garnish with a sprig of fresh herb and a wedge of lemon.

Instead of a pesto vinaigrette, you can combine the following

1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 shallot, finely chopped

2 teaspoons dijon mustard

salt and pepper

juice from 1/2 lemon
