Spring Lentil Salad

Spring has found us hoorayyy,,,yesterday was such a beautiful, sunny, the birds chirping, ducks were quacking..we have a small lake a few feet away from our home so we do have ducks and in each May two swans appear and stay for a couple of weeks before they move on.

I had many errands to do yesterday so I was out most of the day. When I finally returned home, I didn’t have much time to cook, so I made this delicious Lentil Salad with a variety of peppers, dill , (love that dill) scallions, and fresh cherry tomatoes. Not only was this a delicious salad to eat,ย  but it wasย  also so delightful to look at because it’s so colorful. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup Lentilsย 

1 package of Lettuce (your choice)

6 cups Water

1/4 cup Dill (diced)

1/2 cup Red Bell Pepper (chopped)

1/2 cup Orange Bell Pepper (chopped)

1/2 cup Yellow Bell Pepper (chopped)

1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes (cut in half)

Olive Oil

1 lemon

Salt

Pepper

 

Preparation:

Dice dill, scallions, and cut cherry tomatoes in half.

In a large salad bowl start by layeringย  lettuce of your choice, then add a layer of lentil, peppers, dill. Continue with another layer of lettuce, lentil, peppers, dill and top offย  with the last layer, lettuce, lentil, peppers, top with dill, scallions.ย ย 

Drizzle olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper mix and enjoy.

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter…:)
