When I’m craving a salad that’s not only delicious and bursting with flavors, but also hearty, very satisfying, and extremely nutritious, I turn to this Smoked Salmon and Lentil Salad. I usually always keep a few hardboiled eggs in the fridge, and with minimal prep, this salad can be put together quickly and easily. Loaded with protein, fiber and Omega-3’s, this salad is great for a heart healthy lunch idea! You can use leftover cooked salmon with this too, if you prefer, but I love to treat myself to some smoked salmon on occasion. And it works especially well with the tahini sauce in this dish. I also like to thin out the tahini sauce with some water and/or lemon juice, as the Trader Joe’s one I use is really thick. At just 7 Points for the whole, huge salad, this Weight Watchers Recipe is sure to become a favorite of yours, too.
