Lentil & Chickpea Salad

Updated: Apr 27


Here is a great summer salad that you can make ahead and it gets better as all the flavors marinate.

Ingredients

1 can of lentils of choice, drained and rinsed. I use red lentils

1 can of Chickpeas, drained and rinsed,

1 1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved

1 cup of diced cucumbers, seeds removed

1/2 cup kalamata olives

1/2 cup of chopped red onions

1/2 cup of chopped yellow peppers

1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled

1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley

1/4 cup of olive oil

1/4 cup lemon juice - if using fresh all zest one lemon

1 tablespoon of fresh oregano, chopped

salt and pepper to taste

Directions

In a small bowl whisk together lemon juice, zest, olive oil, oregano, salt, and pepper, set aside.

In a large bowl place the balance of the ingredients and toss.

Whisk dressing again and pour over salad, toss, cover, and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.

Enjoy Cooking
