We have a nice crop of green onions and a bumper crop of mint. Was there a way to combine the two??? Time for a salad, methinks! A quick hunt around the web and the most promising recipe was at Adrienneeats. She served it over lettuce, which would be great. We don’t have tomatoes yet, so we upped the pepper by 1/2. It was a really tasty salad, kid approved! We ate it for our July 4th celebration. So healthy!! (Of course we also had a 4 avo. guac!!), and a klondike bar!!

Lentil salad with mint green onions, red pepper and feta

1 cup lentils, rinsed
1/4 c mint, chopped
1/4 c parsley, chopped
5 green onions, diced
1 red pepper, diced
4 oz. feta
2 tbsp olive oil
juice of half a lemon
1 tsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Cook up one cup of small de puy lentils (it’s worth it to track these down!). Rinse with cold water. Chop up mint and parsley and mix into the lentils. Add diced veggies and mix all together.
Mix up dressing and pour over. Mix well. Salt and pepper to taste.
