One of the best ways to cool off in the summer is with a cold salad. We are easily bored with leafy green salads and usually want a little more protein in our meal. When we feel the need to have a light, healthy and cheap option we turn to a tangy lentil salad. This recipe came about when we happened to throw together some ingredients we had around the house, and it had a decidedly Mediterranean feel! This works great as both a side dish or a full entree. It’s also cheap, as lentils, garbanzos, and the veggies are inexpensive.

Est. Price: $6.75

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Cooked Lentils
  • 1 Can Gabanzo Beans
  • 1 Small Red Onion

  • 2 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 3 tsp Dill
  • Salt and Black Pepper to Taste

Method

Step 1

Boil lentils in water for about 20 minutes or until soft. Drain and place in the freezer for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Chop garlic, onion, tomato, and cucumber into chunks and set aside.

Step 3

Take out lentils and pour in the oil and vinegar. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.

Step 4
