Nectarine, Avocado and Lentil Salad

Nectarine, Avocado and Lentil Salad

  • 1 ½ cups dried French lentils
  • 1 large garlic clove, smashed
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 scallions, white and light green parts only; thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  1. Place lentils and garlic in a saucepan and add water until covered by at least 3 inches. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a low simmer, and cook, covered, until lentils are soft but still hold their shape, about 20 minutes. Drain lentils, discard garlic, and let cool.
  2. Prepare the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, lime zest, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine lentils, scallions, nectarines, avocado, and dressing. Toss to combine, and transfer to a serving platter.
