This is a nice change from the black bean salad I usually do. In fact, I didn't even bother with the black beans. And I used a red pepper instead of green. I added a little chipotle pepper powder to give it a little kick. And as others have said, 1 cup of oil is way too much. This makes way more than 8 servings.
4 1/2 stars. Easy and delicious. I took the advice of other reviewers and cut the oil in half. I used canned lentils, red pepper, and yellow onions because that is what I had on hand.
Loved this recipe! Lentils are so cheap and good for you that I buy them regularly but wanted to find a different way to use them, so I came on this website and found this recipe. The ingredients are so cheap, and if you can get fresh peppers or corn, that's even better. I used 1 can of black beans and 1 of kidney beans. I went easy on the oil, using 1/4 c. of olive oil. I also cut back on the apple cider vinegar and used red wine vinegar. There's lots of room for variations. I have to bring a salad to a picnic in 3 weeks and I think I'll make this again. Thanks for sharing!
