This is one of my signature potluck dishes. It makes a TON. The lentils almost make it taste like a hamburger dish. Don’t even think about using dried herbs for this one. It won’t work.
- 2 cups dry lentils
- 2 cups orzo pasta
- 16 roma tomatoes, diced
- 3⁄4 cup fresh oregano, stems removed and leaves chopped
- 3⁄4 cup olive oil (you can use less)
- Cook orzo and lentils separately in boiling water. Drain (if needed) and allow to cool.
- Toss all of the ingredients together in a bowl and serve cold.
A very nice cold salad to take to a very hot summer potluck. I did use canned lentils and diced tomatoes to make it easier in camp. i would also recommend using very fresh herbs.
I was very surprised, but I just made this for dinner tonight and found it very boring. After tasting it I added some chopped onion, balsamic vinegar and even some shredded cheese but it is still bland. Sorry.
very tasty and simple to make. it made enough for me to eat for this week; which is great as i never have time to cook healthy food for myself. followed recipe; but instead of oregeno added a squeeze of lemon and a touch of vinegar. will make this again. thanks for the healthy and quick recipe!!
