Salad of green lentils and pickled mushrooms

I wish you a very happy new year 2022. Hoping that it brings you joy, health and prosperity.

Oh, prosperity! Do you know the custom that we eat lentils every first January, and also every 1st day of the month? I personally discovered this belief recently, and I have applied myself to following it this year. I’m not very salty, but I love lentil salads. As lentils like to be well vinegared, I often accompany them with pickles. Mushroom pickles are a recent discovery, and I love it! They are perfect in this salad

Feel free to add a poached egg. It’s a great wedding.
