French food gets a bad reputation for its heavy, rich, and decadent meals. But aside from all the butter, cheese, and chocolate, traditional French food often utilizes seasonal produce, local seafood, and simple, pared down preparations that allow these quality ingredients to shine. This simply prepared meal lacks in neither flavor nor nutritional benefits, and comes together start to finish in about 30 minutes. It’s the perfect meal to cook for company on a weeknight when lack of time requires a quick yet elegant meal. Scallops provide a high quality source of protein, and lentils add another boost of protein, and an ample amount fiber. The lemony, sharp Dijon dressing brightens up the kale and tomatoes, making the lentil salad equally as good with the scallops as it is on its own the next day for lunch.
