More About This Recipe

  • Nicole M. PresleyPeople get all wrapped up in green salad and forget that a whole array of other salads exists. For some reason, the lentil salad gets lost in the crowd or people only think to serve lentils warm. This holiday season, I decided to bring it back to the table and serve it cold. The feta and avocado add a nice texture and taste to this bean salad. It also works well with other dishes, tying the whole meal together.
