Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Place the potatoes on the baking tray and coat with the olive oil and salt and roast for 40 minutes, or until golden.
  3. To make the dressing, add the dill and herbs to a small bowl or jar. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  4. To assemble the salad, place the hot potatoes in a large bowl with the lentils, spinach, kale, tomatoes, peas and olives. Pour the dressing over the top and stir until the potatoes are fully coated and the spinach is wilted.
  5. Serve warm or cold. This will keep in the fridge for up to three days.
