Pub sausage & kale salad with mustard dressing
A slightly healthier way to enjoy a pub sausage. This salad is filling enough to be a meal in itself.
Servings: 2 salads
- 3/4 cup dried brown lentils*
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 sausages
- 6 oz kale chopped
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 Tbsp dijon or stone ground mustard
- 1.5 Tbsp red wine vinegar
- Salt to taste
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 pinch red pepper
Heat Sausage & Serve
After making the dressing, you should have about 5-10 minutes left on the lentils. Then cut sausage into slices and brown in a hot pan for 3 minutes per side.
When everything is ready, massage dressing all over kale. Divide kale onto plates, then top with lentils and sausage.
Brown lentils hold their shape when cooking and usually take about 20 minutes to cook. Green lentils also hold their shape, but can take 45 minutes to cook, although sprouted versions seem to cook in about 20 minutes.
