1 red bell pepper (diced)
1 yellow bell pepper (diced)
1 green bell pepper (diced)
1 red onion (diced)
2.5 cups of cooked lentils (cooked and cooled)
2 Tbsp dijon mustard
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp sugar (or sugar substitute)
Add 2.5 cups of pre-cooked lentils (Trader Joe's makes a great box of lentils, find it in the refridgerated section...I use the whole box).
In a separate container, mix mustard, red wine vinegar and sugar. Mix thoroughly. This is the dressing.
Once dressing is combined, pour over the mixture of peppers, lentils and onion. Mix until everything is coated.
I like to serve this on top of arugula for a little extra bite, but can be put on any greens or served alone. If this is the main meal, I add a slice of goat cheese for some extra protein and a nice mild flavor.
Makes 6 servings (generous 1/2 cup per serving)
