  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes; drain. Transfer pasta into a large bowl, and mix in 1 tablespoon olive oil; cover, and refrigerate until cool.
  2. Place lentils into a small saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Cover, and simmer over low heat until lentils are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
  3. Combine the remaining olive oil, vinegar, and garlic in a small bowl.
  4. Remove pasta from refrigerator; add lentils, oil mixture, olives, feta cheese, red onion, mint, and dill; stir until thoroughly blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Good vegetarian dish. The flavors are strong, so it's not typical kid fare. (I'm a tough grader -- I've not given a 5 yet so don't let the 3 stars fool you.)

This is an awesome salad! I followed the recipe exactly the first time I made it. The second time I made it I boiled the lentils for about 8 minutes, then added the orzo to the lentils and boi...

Different from other orzo salads I've made because of the mint and dill flavors, which worked nicely. I like that the lentils gives it some more texture and fiber. I cut way back on the oil an...

This is delish!!!! Hainvg read other reviews, when I relised I was a bit short on orzo, I made up the 50g with quinoa - it gave just that little crunch. I also substitued goats cheese as I was...

This was really tasty and so easy to make ahead of time. I offered warm whole wheat pitas with it for a dinner full of complete protein. I didn't even attempt to offer it to my 2 yo because I d...
