Lentil and arugula salad

Kalamata olives add briny notes to this vegetarian dish.

The key to upgrading salads is an excellent dip, says Dana Tough, a Seattle-based chef developer at ChefSteps. This recipe calls for romesco sauce, a bright red pepper-based dip traditionally made with almonds. While a store-bought one is great for saving time, if you’re looking for more complex flavor try this version made with toasted hazelnuts and pistachios, suggests Tough.

Ingredients

1 ¾ ounces arugula
½ cup zucchini, diced
15 Kalamata olives, cut in half
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
4 tablespoons romesco sauce
Salt
Pepper
