What Started it all:
Greek Yogurt, Celery, lentils, oven

This delicious and nutritious salad is perfect for a family meal. Packed with protein-rich lentils, fresh celery, and a creamy Greek yogurt dressing, it's a healthy choice that everyone will enjoy. Let's get cooking!


  • 1 cup dried lentils
  • 4 stalks of celery, finely chopped
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon (juice and zest)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (optional, for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Rinse the lentils under cold water and place them in a pot with 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 20-25 minutes or until tender. Drain and let cool.
  3. While the lentils are cooking, chop the celery into small, bite-sized pieces.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, minced garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.
  5. Once the lentils have cooled, combine them with the chopped celery in a large salad bowl.
  6. Pour the Greek yogurt dressing over the lentil and celery mixture. Toss gently to coat all the ingredients evenly.
  7. Transfer the salad to a serving dish and garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
