Super Green Salad

Although it is winter season and warming meals are especially welcome, everyone sometimes wants to eat something fresh and lighter than grains or groats.

I came out with this super green salad recipe spontaneously and everything became with the cucumber I really wanted to eat one evening.  I combined it with different green ingredients from my fridge and here it is. To make it more nutritious I have added avocado, chopped walnuts, and previously cooked black lentils.

This salad is really fresh and healthy as well as rich and filling.

It is a perfect idea for a dinner because it is not stodgy at all or for a lunch. It also works out perfect as a lunch box to schools or work.
