This Green Lentil Salad satisfied my meat loving husband no end.  We were literally liking the dressing off the board by the end of the darn thing? Don?t judge!

The perfect combination of flavors makes this twist on the traditional Greek salad great for the whole family to enjoy.

I like to serve my salads on a large chopping board so we can all dive in but feel free to serve on individual plates or however else you fancy.
