Recipes - Lentil Salad

I've been on a bit of a health kick lately but was eating the same thing every single day.  No exaggeration.  So after two weeks, instead of giving up, I decided to get creative and throw together a simple yet delicious salad.  It tastes so amazing and could easily be served as a side dish for grilled meat or chicken or be like me and enjoy it as a filling, low calorie lunch.

1 x 400g tin lentils, drained and rinsed
150g low fat fetta, cubed
2 tomatoes, diced
1 lebanese cucumber, diced
1 red capsicum, finely diced
1/2 spanish onion, finely diced
1/4 cup coriander or parsley, roughly chopped
1 tbs olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
salt and pepper, to season

Step 1 - Combine all ingredients in a bowl, season well with pepper and lightly with salt.   Fold gently and serve.
