This is a great base salad, if you want to turn it into a meal, add chicken, tuna, sliced steak, grilled tofu, goat cheese, brie cheese, or even cottage cheese. Adding turmeric to the salad dressing, doesn’t change the flavor, but creates a golden yellow color to the dish and lots and lots of health benefits even in that small amount!
Lentils are high in protein and filling! This salad is so good leftover too. Feel free to add a leafy green and turn it into a lettuce salad too! Or add pulled chicken or fish and its a one dish dinner!
Corn beef is such a treat and I only buy it on special occasions but if you are going to buy it and make it, make it right! It should be moist and juicy and pink and falling apart in the best of ways!
Most people use leeks for leek potato soup and not much else. I love finding alternative ways to cook these sweet and large onions!
This mixture can be made up to two days ahead and kept in the fridge. You can make them into patties while the pan is hot and do it all in the moment in batches!
