Lentil and Bean Salad
Since I am eating all the time I thought I should start eating healthy food.
Maybe all this fiber will fill me up.
One package of precooked Trader Joes lentils. I love these.
Two cans of drained small white beans
Three stalks of celery, cut into bite size pieces
1/2 cup chopped parsley. Only use fresh.
Ten large basil leaves rough chop. Only use fresh.
One chopped red pepper
1/2 jalapeno diced
1/2 jalapeño cut into thin circles for decoration
4 to 6 ounces of lemon dressing
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Three diced scallions
Mix everything together
Taste to adjust the salt
I added the juice of half a lemon because I love a lot of lemon.
This can be made a day ahead of time.
Black olives, pepperoni peppers or feta cheese would be good add ins.
Serve as a salad or a dip with pita chips.
