I have been eating this salad constantly for weeks now! I can’t help it. This Greek Lentil Feta Salad is that yummy! You don’t even notice the lentils! For those of you that want to sneak something really good for you into an already healthy salad! Having a food blog is a lot of fun but if I am not careful those extra pounds keep showing up, whether I like it or not! This salad is low in calories and so healthy for you to eat.
Greek Lentil Feta Salad is so bright and colorful! I leave the vegetables and lentils in one container, the feta in another and the dressing out on the counter. In the fridge the olive oil thickens to the point you can’t use it. If you prefer you can keep it in the fridge and take it out a few hours before you are going to use it! When I am ready for a bowl I scoop out some salad, add some feta and then dressing. Give the salad a stir so the dressing lightly coats everything and start to eat! Days of enjoyment! I also find it easier to eat better if something is already prepared and ready to go. Maybe I am strange! Having this Greek Lentil Feta Salad in the fridge has become my go to food!
With this salad you might have extra dressing left over. It will depend on how much you like to use. Regardless this dressing can be used with any salad that you make! I love this salad so much I couldn’t help but make a video! Doesn’t it look yummy? You have to give it a try!
