Lentil Salad with Feta Cheese

    Pretty darn good! I added finely chopped red onion and some chopped black olives. It's a very Greek style recipe, looks lovely, and would be good to scoop up in toasted pita wedges. This is a real keeper and a good Summer side salad.

    I also made this with red onion, and left out the celery (not a big celery fan). I think it is tasty and a great bag lunch recipe. I will definitely make it again.

    Super fast and delicious! Didn't have cucumber but per other reviewer added olives (kalamata). Also roasted some red peppers and added those (chopped). I didn't think it looked exceptionally pretty when finished. In fact, when my husband didn't comment during dinner, I assumed he wasn't a big fan. However, after dinner (and his second helping), he said that he really loved it. This will be on the summer go-to list for sure.

    Not bad...I needed a side for CL Tomato and Feta Pizza, and this seemed to fit the bill. I omitted the olives, used sun-dried tomatoes, added some sweet onion and "guesstimated" the proportions as I scaled back the recipe quite a bit, but the combination of flavors was pleasing. I didn't mind the thyme as another reviewer did; I wonder what it would taste like with dill instead. This would be good as a side or as a main dish.

    It was a very good salad but I prefere it with some red onions and no thyme.

    A good salad for a packed lunch. I have made it twice once with beluga (black) lentils and once green lentils. Both worked great. I like them more for salads than brown lentils because they keep their shape. Also a good recipe to use as base for many other flavor combinations like roasted red peppers, olives and capers.

    Great ideas posted, I added olives and some of the brine, capers and some chopped shallots as well as a tbls of balsamic vinegar., Made it for a healthy meal one night while DH was out of town. Yummy and quick and easy.
