" I made this salad when I had cooked too many lentils and mushrooms for a filling of another dish. I then decided to make them into a warm salad as they were so delicious. The crispy sage really brings the salad to life and the crumbled feta adds a delicious creamy texture to compliment the earthy mushrooms and lentils. This is the perfect, quick salad to make for a mid-week dinner, you can serve it with a side of beef or chicken it would be a delicious compliment. It is nourishing and packed with a variety of plants, full of veggies and fibre, so healthy and delicious! "
