Lentil Salad

Oh, this was the perfect summer salad.  And super easy (do I say that about everything?).  Take all the veggies in your fridge, chop in food processor, add pre-cooked lentils, vinaigrette, and seasoning. So easy. This one had broccoli, onion, purple carrots, basil, yellow squash, celery. You can cook your own lentils and let them cool, or buy pre-cooked lentils. Trader Joes has cooked lentils.  If you cook them, just make sure they are a lentil that stays somewhat firm when cooked. Sometimes I make vinaigrette, but I was in a hurry so I just used bottled champagne dressing, garlic salt, pepper, and an organic no salt seasoning blend that I get at Costco.
