Summer is going by so fast! Nevertheless, we must enjoy every single lasting bit of it before it ends. Make an end-of-summer bucket list! Whether you want to attend a yoga class in the park, go away to a lakeside cottage for the weekend or read the book that’s been sleeping on your nightstand, write it down and do it!
I wanted to share with you my last simple summery salad before the season ends. This one is creamier than the other two salads (discover them here if you haven’t already) because of the yummy mix of Israeli couscous, French lentils and Dijon mustard. So it will satisfy your taste buds during the cozy-homy fall season as well.
Creamy Cherry Tomatoes and Zucchini Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette
– 1 cup of French lentils
– 1/2 cup of Israeli couscous
– 551 ml of cherry tomatoes
– 2 zucchinis
– Pumpkin seeds
– Sunflower seeds
– 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
– Salt and Pepper to taste
Put the French lentils in 3 cups of water, bring to a boil and let simmer for about 20 minutes.
While the lentils are boiling, start cooking the Israeli couscous. Bring 1 cup of water to a boil and then add the Israeli couscous. Bring back to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
While you wait, chop the zucchinis. Then sauté them for 5 to 10 minutes in a skillet with a bit of oil, salt, and pepper.
Chop the cherry tomatoes in half.
When everything is ready, mix the French lentils, Israeli couscous, zucchinis and tomatoes with the pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. Add your dijon mustard.
Enjoy the yumminess of this salad, and most of all…enjoy the end of you summer!
