    About this recipe: This is fast, healthy and tastes good! We love olives but you might want to add fewer if you prefer.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 14 

    • 500g (1 1/4 lb) dried brown lentils, rinsed and drained
    • 1 red pepper, seeded and chopped

    1. Place lentils in a large pot with enough water to cover by a few inches. Bring to the boil, and cook until lentils are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water in a colander to cool. Let stand for a few minutes to drain well.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice. Add the red pepper, onion and green olives, and toss to blend. Refrigerate for about 2 hours before serving to blend the flavours. This salad tastes better the longer it sits.
