To be honest, this is one of those quick recipes that just developed from using up leftovers. I’m glad I threw it together, because this lentil apple slaw was a total slam dunk. It was so tasty that I knew I had to share it with you!

If you’re really feeling creative, try it stuffed with other faves in wraps and taco shells. This lentil apple slaw is a versatile recipe just waiting for you to take it on an adventure.
