Italian Lentil Salad

 Italian Lentil Salad
I've got another delicious salad for you today! If you have a Trader Joe's nearby, you will find this a breeze to make. If you don't, it is still easy... you just may have to hunt a little for the ingredients to this Italian Lentil Salad.
Here's what you need: steamed lentils, English cucumber, red bell pepper, fresh bruschetta and feta cheese.
Italian Lentil Salad
(I usually half the recipe, unless I'm making it for a crowd.)

1 (17 oz.) package Trader Joe's Steamed Lentils
1 (14.5 oz.) tub fresh Trader Joe's Bruschetta Sauce
1 tub Crumbled Feta Cheese (plain or Mediterranean style)
1 English cucumber, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped

Mix all the ingredients together and chill to allow all the flavors to meld together.
This fresh tasting salad is very filling and can be a meal on its own. I've even added noodles to the leftovers for a delicious pasta salad. This would be a great dish to bring to those summertime pot-lucks. Have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy your Mother's Day!
I'm linking up at some of these great parties and

  9. Hmmmm, no Trader Joe's here so I will have to see about finding the steamed lentils but it looks like it will be worth the effort! Love a good chilled salad in the hot summer months!
