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,Β  but it wasΒ  also so delightful to look at because it’s so colorful. πŸ™‚
