Spinach & Lentil Salad

Coach Aly’s Strength Salad

If you are ever in need of a hearty salad, this is one of my favorite Balanced Beauty combinations… It’s flavorful, simple, and has a touch of both sweet and salty flavors! It is completely filling on its own or it can be used as a perfect side to any protein.

Lentils are legumes which are high in dietary fiber at 16 grams per cup ( brown rice contains just 2 grams in a cup). They are also a great source of protein! This salad is perfect for those who are gluten-free, vegan/ vegetarian, or those trying to lose weight, as it will definitely keep you full and satisfied!


  • Spinach
  • Cooked Lentils- Warm
  • Sliced red, yellow and orange peppers
  • Feta (or favorite cheese substitute)*
  • Cubed Avocado
  • Sliced Green Olives
  • Green Goddess Dressing*

*Dressing can be found at Trader Joes or is simply made of following ingredients, which you can easily add in / make on your own: Water, Apple Cider Vinegar, Green Onions, Lemon Juice, Chives, Parsley, Olive Oil & Extra Virgin Olive Oil blend, Basil, Garlic, Sea Salt and Black Pepper.


  1. Pre-cook lentils, season as desired (I use olive oil, salt & pepper)
  2. Put into large bowl, mixing in spinach leaves as desired
  3. Continue mixing adding in all other ingredients
  4. When ready to eat, pour in and mix dressing
  5. Serve warm/room temp or refrigerate to serve chilled — Works as both a warm or cold salad!

*Add radishes or other veggies to add bright, vibrant colors- The more colorful, the more health benefits and happier you feel!
