A Ridiculously Cheap and Healthy and Yum Salad

Lentil-Salad-with-Roasted-Beets-and-Carrots_604

So remember when I mentioned you should check out the site Greatist?  This delish lentils with roasted beets and carrots recipe popped up on their home page a couple days later and I knew I had to try it out.  I was drawn to the super simple recipe list and knew this was going to cost me very little to make.  I hit up my local Sprouts and spent approximately $3.50 for the lentils and the produce, which included an organic beet.  I also have extra carrots to spare!

I used almost an entire lemon and the whole salad turned pink from the beets.  I like beets a lot so I really enjoyed this.  It was extremely easy to make and it was a great side dish for two people with leftovers for lunch the next day.  Beets and lentils are the superfoods packed into this salad.  And for $3.50, how could you not try it???
