Lentil & Summer Vegetable Salad

I cannot believe that it’s August, I feel like summer is flying by!  We’re trying to enjoy the the summer fruits and vegetables every single day.  There are many fresh tomatoes, zucchini’s and cucumbers in our fridge.

I’ve been trying to make easy salads that incorporate summer vegetables.  This is a salad which was not only nutritious, but also delicious (sorry, that’s so cheesy!).  But it’s true!  Definitely a keeper for a lunch salad.  It’s great with a slice of fresh bread or a pita.
