Lentil and Feta Cheese Salad

Photo by: Joey DeLeo

There’s something appropriate about pairing feta cheese and lentils—perhaps it’s the mingling of the salty and peppery flavors.

Yield: 6 servings

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup green or brown lentils
  • 3 medium firm, flavorful tomatoes, 5 or 6 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 4 to 6 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 to 3 scallion, minced
  • ½ cup natural low-fat vinaigrette
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions

1. Rinse the lentils and check them for small stones. Combine in a saucepan with 3 cups water and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer gently until done but still firm, about 30 minutes. Check frequently toward the end of cooking time to make sure the lentils don’t become over-cooked. Drain any excess water from the lentils, and rinse until cooled.

2. Combine the lentils with the remaining ingredients in a serving bowl and toss together. Serve at once or cover and refrigerate until needed.
