This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is Cucumber Lentil Salad. It comes from one of my favorite sites, http://www.pbs.org/food/ The site is stocked full of healthy and delicious recipes along with some great cooking tips and ideas.

Cucumber Lentil SaladPBS3
1/2 cup dried lentils
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1 large hot-house cucumber (or 3 persian cucumbers), diced
1 bunch of dill, minced (about 3 tablespoons)
Juice from 1 lemon
Salt to taste

In a medium saucepan, add the lentils, a few pinches of salt and enough water to cover lentils by a few inches. Turn the heat to medium and cover the pot, cooking the lentils for 10 to 15 minutes, until tender. Drain the lentils and set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, add yogurt, lemon juice and a few pinches of salt. Mix until combined. Add the dill, diced cucumber and nearly cooled lentils. Toss together until completely combined. Give it a taste and adjust the salt or lemon juice to your liking. Serve immediately.
