This sweet potato and lentil salad is packed with protein and great flavor. I used pre-steamed lentils, which I picked up from trader joes so this dish came together in 15 minutes. It is perfect for meal prep too! If you are saving it for the week or using it as meal prep I recommend avoid avocado when serving to avoid browning.
