Serves 8

  • 1 pound red potatoes, rinsed, peeled, and cut into bite size cubes
  • 1 1/4 cup beets, rinsed, peeled, and cut into bite site cubes
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked, small green lentils
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 cup mayonaisse, or vegan mayo
  • 1 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 cups chopped kale

 

Place potatoes and beets in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add enough cold water to completely cover vegetables, add salt, and bring to a boil. Once water is boiling, reduce heat to a low simmer; do not cover. Cook vegetables approximately 25 minutes or until potatoes and beets are tender.

Once done, place potatoes and beets in a strainer to drain water; run cold water over potatoes and beets until cooled.

In a large mixing bowl, combine cooled potatoes and beets, lentils, and apple cider vinegar. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard and ground pepper together. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the potato and beet mixture; combine well.

Potato-Beet Lentil Salad can be refrigerated up to 3 days before serving. Serve on top of chopped kale.
