    .75 cup lentils (I used red lentils)
    6 large swiss chard leaves (tough stems removed) corsely chopped (2-3 cups)
    2 large tomatoes, roughly chopped (about 2 cups)
    juice of 1/2 lemon
    2 TBSP good olive oil
    2-3 scallions, white and light green parts minced
    2 cloves of garlic, minced
    salt & pepper to tasts


Simple and easy, but oh so yummy. I served it as a side dish to broiled salmon.


Combine lentils with plenty of water to cover. Depending on the type of lentils used bring to a boil and cook al dente (10 - 20 minutes) .. do NOT overcook. Drain the lentils and transfer to a large bowl; add chard and toss with the warm lentils until it wilts a bit. Season with salt and pepper. In a late measuring cup, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, scallions and pepper. Gently toss with lentil-chard mixture. Add the tomatoes and a few more 'grinds' of black pepper. Add cheese to top before serving.
