How to Make It

Step 1

Sort lentils and discard any debris. Rinse and drain lentils.

Step 2

In a 2- to 3-quart pan, bring about 1 quart water to a boil over high heat. Add lentils, stir to separate, and simmer, uncovered, just until they are tender to bite but not soft, 5 to 10 minutes for Red Chiefs, 20 to 30 minutes for regular lentils. Drain.

Step 3

Mix vinegar, oil, and garlic. Pour over warm lentils and gently mix. Let stand until cool.

Step 4

Add bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, cucumber, basil, and feta cheese. Mix gently with lentils. Pour into a serving bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
