Cucumber and Lentil Salad

by Mama Lisa

This recipe is tremendously easy and is really great for potlucks, picnics or as a side for any meal. My mother was clever enough to think this one up on her way to a party one day, needing to mix up a last minute dish. And, it has stuck with us ever since!

LentilSaladPrep

Ingredients:

2 cups Steamed Lentils
half a Cucumber, sliced and quartered
1/4 cup Green Onions, diced
1 Lemon, squeezed
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

Instructions:

Slice and quarter half of a large Cucumber and set aside. Dice your Green Onions and also set aside.

You can either steam your own Lentils, or Trader Joe’s has lovely, pre-steamed Lentils in their Salad and Greens section of the Produce Department.

Place the Lentils, Cucumbers and Green Onions in a large bowl together. Squeeze the Juice of one Lemon into the bowl and add a swirl of Olive Oil (about 1-2 tsp. worth). Sprinkle in Salt and Pepper to taste. Stir all the ingredients together until evenly combined.
