Lentil Salad Recipe

April 10, 2024

The recipe for this lentil salad was given to me by a vegetarian former co-worker. I made some changes to it , most notably leaving out the olives called for in the original recipe because I don't like them. That is one of the fun things about cooking with whole foods, you can change and play with recipes to suit your own tastes. A recipe is really just a jumping off point.

Lentil Salad


In a medium sauce pan place:
1 1lb. of lentils, picked over
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 bay leaves
Cover with water an inch above lentils, bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to simmer for 20 min. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine:
1 red pepper, diced
1 green or yellow pepper, diced
1 small red onion, diced
2 tomatoes, diced
2/3 c. feta cheese
When lentils are done, drain, remove bay leaves and pour in bowl with veggies. In a measuring cup combine:
1/3 c. red wine vinegar
3 T. olive oil
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 T. dried parsley
Whisk dressing and pour over salad and toss well.
