Get Me to the Greek


Not only is summer my favorite season for fruit, I’ve found that everything just tastes fresher. And after an extended weekend in Palm Springs where there was quite a bit of indulging and lots of vino, I found myself craving as many veggies as I could pile into one bowl. Enter a favorite go to of mine: an updated Greek salad with lentils for added protein. It’s quick, easy, and refreshing in the rising temps, and so satisfying! 
Ingredients

  • 1 roma tomato, seeded
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/2 orange pepper
  • 1/2 English cucumber
  • 1/3 container seasoned feta from Trader Joes
  • 1/3 container cooked lentils, chilled
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste

Directions

  1. Slice and seed the tomato, this keeps the salad from getting mushy
  2. Chop the tomato, cucumber, and pepper into equal size pieces
  3. Slice the onion into thin strips
  4. Top with feta and lentils 
  5. Drizzle with olive oil, salt to taste
  6. Mix and Enjoy!

It’s that simple!
