Legumes would be my desert island food—you know, the one item you'd choose to take with you to a desert island if you had to narrow it down. I don't even have to be marooned to happily eat them day after day. Chickpea Taco Bowls, Curried Lentils, White Bean Soup—I will happily devour them all. Not surprisingly, ErikaKerekes's Romantic French Lentil Salad appealed to me immediately—a lentil salad with under ten ingredients that makes great leftovers? Sold.

What Is "The Satisfaction Factor" & Why Does It Matter So Much

  What Is This morning, I had an unusual breakfast: an apple and a scoop of peanut butter. Not an unusual pairing, per se, but I normally go for a much more substantial meal in the morning. I’ll typically have eggs and toast, or oatmeal with fruit, seeds, nuts, and all kinds of crap mixed in. Every meal is important, but without a seriously complete breakfast, I’m a wreck by midday, and so when my appetite wakes up demanding eggs and toast, I make a point of listening. Would you like jam with that? I’ll ask. We have raspberry and sour cherry this morning. Just butter? Very good.

It's easy and very tasty but, like me, you might find this zippy salad even more appealing (if that's even possible) after hearing the story behind it from ErikaKerekes:

My husband and I first had this traditional French lentil salad in Le Puy, where most of France's lentil crop is grown. It uses the small, dark lentils you'll find in gourmet stores labeled "Lentilles du Puy." (My husband first thought the town was famous for its contact lenses, which are also called "lentilles" in French.) The restaurant in Le Puy where we first ate this salad is also the place where he asked me to marry him—thus the recipe's name.

And she let me know that they recently celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary, so maybe make this salad and share it with someone you love. (Though ideally not while stranded on a desert island.)
