Lentil & Mixed Vegetable Salad

The heat of the summer brings endless fun and excitement: tons of barbecues, pool parties, beach days, park visits, hikes, and anything else that you can squeeze into the extended hours of daylight. With all these adventures who has time to cook lengthy recipes? Instead, I prefer to fill my refrigerator with ready made salads that are easy to grab and go. Lentil Salad will always be a personal favorite. Lentils range between all colors of the spectrum, and are sold in many different forms, however, a couple characteristics remain consistent: They’re delicious, and loaded with essential nutrients, including tons of fiber and protein. This recipe is fairly quick, very easy, makes a large portion to split up over a few days, and will be a crowd pleaser for any occasion.
