This lentil salad is warming, packed full of flavour and the perfect way to use up bits and bobs you may already have hanging around. Give it a go if you're looking for an easy way to make lentils a little bit more exciting and use up store cupboard staples.

This recipe calls for Violife Greek White Block which is a great vegan alternative to feta, but feel free to swap in feta or halloumi if dairy is part of your diet, or forgo cheese altogether. It will still taste just as good, we promise.
