  • ½ cup of cherry tomatoes
  • Feta cheese, crumbed
  • 1 cup of cooked lentils (optional)

  2. Decant the dressing into an airtight jar and let it cool in the fridge

Couscous salad:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, place them on a baking tray and season them with salt and pepper. Bake the cherry tomatoes in your oven for 10 minutes.
