Lentil Salad

Yield:
4 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 cups dried lentils, picked over for stones
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper
Directions
  • In a large saucepan, bring 1 quart of water to a boil. Season water and stir in lentils. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook lentils for 20-30 minutes or until just tender. The lentils should not be mushy. Drain off any remaining liquid.

  • Begin chopping the garlic clove and sprinkle with some salt. Using the flat side of the knife mash the garlic into a paste. In a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and garlic paste. Whisk the olive oil into the lemon juice in a thin stream. Stir in the parsley, tomatoes, green pepper and basil. Gently mix in the drained lentils and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper
