Ingredients

  • 2 cups beluga lentils
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 celery stalk
  • ½ onion
  • 2 Tbsp. pickled chipotle
  • 2 cups mango diced
  • ½ cup white onion finely chopped
  • ½ cup cilantro leaves chopped
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tsp. chipotle hot sauce
  • Coarse sea salt

Instructions

  • Rinse the lentils and put them in a pot with the water, celery, ½ onion and pickled chipotle.
  • Cook uncovered for about 20 minutes, or until the lentils are done but firm.
  • Place the lentils on a strainer and let them cool down completely. Discard the solids (celery, onion and chipotle pieces).
  • Put the cold lentils in a bowl with chopped onion, mango, and cilantro.
  • In a small bowl make the honey-chipotle vinaigrette by combining olive oil, rice vinegar, honey, chipotle sauce and salt, and whisk to emulsify.
  • Add the chipotle vinaigrette, stir and refrigerate at least for 30 minutes before serving.

Notes

I created this salad at a time in which I used to consume sugar, hence the honey. You can skip the honey and the salad will be deliciously completed with the fructose contained in the mango.
