The ultimate salad for Summer. This Dukkah Roasted Carrot Salad with Popped Lentils is my new go to favourite side dish recipe. The carrots are roasted in a chilli infused olive oil (which take literally 2 minutes to make) and my Authentic Homemade Dukkah Spice Mix and topped with crispy oven baked popped lentils.
What are popped lentils?
Popped lentils are my new favourite way to have any kind of lentil in a salad. They’re pre-cooked puy or beluga lentils (I use Puy Lentils from Merchant Gourmet) roasted in the oven until crispy. I used my chilli infused olive oil in this Dukkah Roasted Carrots recipe but if you’re making them not as part of this recipe you can simply roast in olive oil with a pinch of salt and add any flavourings you fancy.
