This was very good and I'll make it again. I love how large the portion sizes are. The tahini dressing makes the whole dish, for sure. I wasn't really in the mood for edamame so I left that out and added a whole cucumber to make up the difference in volume. Still delicious with that modification.
I am a crazy picky eater. As in I pretty much lived off of dairy before going vegan and this is probably the only salad I’ve ever tried that I actually genuinely like. The dressing is perfection and my husband tells me the dressing goes really well with pasta salad as well.
Infinitas gracias por compartir tu sabiduría.
Dear pick up limes,
thank you so much for all your videos. They are indeed packed with information. More and more of your recipes make it to our go-to list. Much appreciated ! Thank you ever so much.
This salad is really delicious and easy to make! I added cucumber and replaced spinach with Swiss chard. The dressing was heavenly.
Delicious and easy to make!
This is so tasty and filling, but the dressing is like something from a restaurant. I just love the quality and thought that goes into these recipes. I have found nothing like this anywhere else. Thank you
This is a great recipe to make when you have leftover lentils/grains from meal prep. Throw everything together in a bowl and you have an instant nourishing meal!
LOVE this salad! I've made it at least 10x now. So tasty and filling. 😊
I love the new site. It's so cool that we can change serving sizes! Makes calculation that much easier.
Could someone please let me know the quantity of uncooked (and unsoaked) brown lentils and raw quinoa?
Dear PUL Team, you made me fall in love with nourishment (and edamame). This recipe is great! Super easy to make too. Thanks!
This is a winner salad, for sure! I loved it.
This is an overall "Wow" rating. It just happens to land here. The way you have developed your site is inventive and genius. I just discovered that I can cross off my ingredient list. Love it so much my heart rate went up! I haven't seen another site like this, so thorough and informative and in such a tasteful (pun intended) way. An inspiration and a pleasure to browse, cook, bake, eat, and watch you and your teams hard work and oh so deserving success! Love the interactive browsing features and illustrated nutrition info. All around aesthetically pleasing through and through. I aim to cook and bake every beautiful bite. Thank you!
It's so tasty and versatile! I love it. It was my first time using tahini and I can say that it was a success! Lots of love!
