4 to 6 servings

  • 1/2 cup green lentils, preferably French
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup fine bulgur, available in most supermarkets and health food stores
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 scallions, finely sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted red pepper from a jar, drained
  • 1/2 cup pitted and chopped Kalamata olives
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese
  • In a small saucepan combine lentils with enough water to cover the lentils by 2-inches. Bring the lentils to a boil, reduce the heat to moderate and simmer until the lentils are tender, but not falling apart, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain the lentils and allow to cool.

  • In a small saucepan bring the water to a boil, stir in the bulgur and simmer, covered, until the water is absorbed, about 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, fluff with a fork and allow to cool, stirring occasionally.

  • In a large bowl whisk together olive oil and lemon juice. Stir in garlic, scallions, roasted red pepper, olives, parsley, salt and pepper. Add bulgur and lentils and toss to combine. Transfer salad to a serving dish and garnish with crumbled Feta.
