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,  but it was  also so delightful to look at because it’s so colorful. 🙂



Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup Lentils 

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:

In a large sauce pan add water and boil lentil for 1/2 hr and until soft.  Once they have boiled drain, and wash out throughly with cold running water.

P1010414

Chop peppers into small cubes.

P1010417

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

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

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

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter…:)
