  1. Place lentils in a large pot with enough water to cover be a few inches. Bring to a boil, and cook until lentils are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water in a colander to cool. Let stand for a few minutes to drain well.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice. Add the red pepper, onion and green olives, and toss to blend. Refrigerate for about 2 hours before serving to blend the flavors. This salad tastes better the longer it sits.

Like other reviewers, I modified the base recipe a bit, addding cilantro, black olives (in addition to the green ones) and a diced cucumber. I also substituted (half) a red onion for the called...

I really liked this recipe - it's so quick and easy to prepare! I added some celery and grated carrot which added some variety and extra colour!

Great basic recipe. I went with the other reviewers additions, plus more. I love onions, so I put a generous amount of that, fresh cilantro, red bell peppers, cucumbers, chopped jalapenos from a...

This was the first time I cooked with lentils (which is odd because I love them!). This salad was nice and different. I halved the recipe and it still made a large amount. I cut the olives do...
