This is a perfect recipe for using up leftover lentils. You don’t need to add salt to the dressing, as the olives and cheese provide plenty. The real flavor stars of this dish, however, are the lemon and dill, which will complement pretty much any fresh salad veggie you’d like to add in. To make this dish vegan, simple replace the cheese with a few extra olives.

  • ¼ cup fresh dill, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil

Directions

  1. Toss all ingredients together gently.
  2. Chill overnight and serve cold for best flavor.
