Marinated French Lentil & Kale Salad
This tasty salad will wake up your taste buds and make you feel amazing too. The combination of highly nutritious Lacinato kale, roasted nuts and feta cheese is addicting. Perfect for packed lunches and potlucks! 

Marinated French Lentil & Kale Salad
2 cups cooked Flourist French Lentils 
1 bunch of Lacinato kale, sliced thinly 
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped finely 
1 cup Pistachios, toasted 
1 cup feta, cubed
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp salt 
2 tbsp dijon mustard 
1 tbsp sugar or maple syrup 
1/2 cup fresh herbs such as cilantro, basil, or parsley 

Pre-cook your Flourist French Lentils using our soak & steam method. Soak the French Lentils for 4-20 hours, then drain and rinse. Steam in a vegetable steamer basket for 20-25 minutes, until tender but still firm. Remove from the steamer and allow to cool slightly. Toss with olive oil to coat.

Combine cooked French lentils, kale, red pepper, pistachios, fresh herbs, and feta in a mixing bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, mustard, sugar or maple syrup, and salt. Pour over the salad ingredients and mix well. Allow to marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes before serving, if possible. This will allow the kale to wilt and soften.


  • Hi Erika, you could try using Laird Lentils or possibly Farro but this salad isn’t going to be as delicious without French Lentils.

  • What is the substitute for the lentils . I cant order, due to timing.

  • Hi Kathryn! The French lentils are best for this recipe, we sell ours online (we ship all across the USA + Canada) or in our shop on Vancouver. Lacinato Kale is also called black kale or dino kale, but you could use curly if you needed to. Hope that helps!

  • are the lentils interchangeable, where can I find these ones?
    and what is Lacinto kale, where is it found, are there substitutes?
