• 1 x 400 g can no-added-salt brown lentils, drained
  • 1/2 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 spring onions (including green tops), sliced
  • 1 bunch English spinach leaves, shredded
  • 150 g reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbs walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup low-fat Italian salad dressing


  1. Combine lentils, garlic, onion, spinach and feta in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add tomatoes, walnuts and dressing.

Make your own low-fat Italian dressing by mixing juice from ½ lemon with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and a little Dijon mustard.

Recipe from Healthy Food Fast © State of Western Australia, 2012. Reproduced with permission.


Use 250g cooked green beans instead of spinach. Replace canned lentils with 1 1/2 cups cooked lentils. Always rinse lentils and pick out stones before cooking. Cook according to packet instructions. Be careful not to overcook as they will go mushy.

Serving Suggestion:

Serve with roast pork loin or chicken.

Healthy tip!

Try mustard instead of mayonnaise to add extra flavour to your salads and sandwiches.
