INGREDIENTS

  • LEMON GARLIC DRESSING
  • 1 lemon ($0.59)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil ($0.44)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced ($0.16)
  • 1/2 Tbsp dried oregano ($0.15)
  • 1/2 tsp salt ($0.02)
  • Freshly Cracked Pepper
  • SALAD
  • 1 cup dry brown lentils ($0.40)
  • 1/2 bunch parsley ($0.40)
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes ($2.99)
  • 1/4 small red onion ($0.24)
  • 2 oz feta, crumbled ($1.12)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cook the lentils according to the package directions. For most brown lentils, bring 3 cups of water to boil in a pot, add the lentils, then continue to boil for 20 minutes, or until the lentils are tender. Drain the lentils in a colander and rinse briefly with cool water until they are cooled.
  2. While the lentils are cooking, prepare the lemon garlic dressing. Use a microplane, zester, or small-holed cheese grater to remove about 1 Tbsp of the lemon's zest (the thin, yellow, outer layer of the peel). Set the zest aside. Juice the lemon and measure 1/4 cup of the juice to use for the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, oregano, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper. Set the dressing aside.
  3. Rinse the parsley well, shake off as much water as possible, then pull the leaves from the stems. Roughly chop the parsley leaves. Cut the grape tomatoes in half. Finely dice the red onion.
