Ingredients, then ingredients and also ingredients are the make or break of good food!

When you are using premium ingredients there is no way that whatever you mix won’t turn out amazing! I always love lentils and love making them all the time, whether as a pilaf, soup or in salads, lentils are delicious and absolutely satisfying! These Beluga lentils taste so earthy and pack so much lentil flavour that all of you lentil lovers out there will be using them all the time.


But really the star here is these divine cherry tomatoes that I buy from Rashed Al Kitbi’s organic farm in Al Ain. He truly grows the country’s best cherry tomatoes. And I have made this salad to celebrate all the ingredients that I love. A simple, fast, and fuss free salad that you will enjoy anytime. It will leave you fully satisfied without feeling overly full or bothered. Light, fresh, satisfying and absolutely delicious, the type of food I love to eat. So make it and enjoy x
