Cold Lentil Salad Ideas

Heatherb | Aug 15, 2011 03:00 PM

I've tried to incorporate more lentils into my diet, as they're a wonderfully healthy food. But I like them best in cold salads. Does anyone have any good recipes? I made one on the fly a couple nights ago that I just love - but I'm gonna get tired of it after I finish the rather large batch.

I mixed together the following:
lentils
1 roasted red pepper (done on the grill)
shreds of lightly sauteed zucchini
shreds of raw baby spinach
mixed olives, chopped
two roasted beets (golden and red)
finely chopped green onions (mostly the green bits)
feta crumbles

Topped it all off with a red wine vinaigrette made with walnut oil, garlic, Italian seasoning and a touch of honey. It's pretty good. Would love some more ideas though!
