  • 1 (or more) medium-size ripe tomatoes, chopped into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 mild pepper (such as Anaheim or poblano), thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cups chopped Italian parsley

Green Lentil Salad Directions

  1. Soak the lentils overnight in water, drain and rinse.
  2. Place the lentils in a pot with the water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a gentle simmer and cook for 10–15 minutes—taking care not to overcook.
  3. Drain any excess water, place the lentils in a bowl, add all of the other ingredients and toss gently without mashing the lentils. Cover and either chill or rest at room temperature for about an hour before serving.
