Lentil Pepper Salad

Lentil Pepper Salad:

1 cup green lentils
 1 cup cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/2 lemon juiced
1/4-1/2 cup parsley chopped
2 cups chopped bell peppers (any colors)
1 cup diced cucumber
2 tbsp feta
1 cup snap peas chopped
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1 tbsp olive oil.
Salt, pepper, garlic powder (your fav seasonings)

1. Cook lentils as directed on package, drain, put in fridge to cool.
2. Once cool mix tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, peas, almonds, feta and parsley in with the lentils.  Mix in seasoning, olive oil and lemon juice.  Chill for 10 mins and serve.  This is a great recipe to make extra and bring for lunch the following day.

The recipe takes 35 mins (not including the cooling time on lentils) and makes 4 servings.
Each serving is 287 Calories.
Note: For some there's not enough flavor from the olive oil and seasoning, if you want to add dressing I would suggest low calorie Kraft feta Greek!  Its delish on this dish ;)
