Zucchini and Lentil Summer Salad


  • 8 zucchini
  • 4 cups cherry tomatoes halved
  • 4 cups cooked lentils
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ a lemon juiced
  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
  • salt an pepper to taste


  1. Cut zucchini into thin, noodle-like strips (a mandoline works well for this). Lightly salt the zucchini slices and place them in a colander to “sweat” for 30 minutes.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the zucchini and boil it for one minute. Drain and rinse immediately with cold water to stop the cooking process.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pre-cooked lentils, tomatoes, vinegar, oil, lemon juice, onions, and zucchini until well coated. Chill for one hour then serve.
