Lentils Key to Light, Healthy Greek Salad

A light and easy-to-make salad will be the featured recipe every Wednesday in July at the NorthBay Medical Center and NorthBay VacaValley Hospital cafes as part of the Nutrition Department's Wild Wednesdays campaign.

Greek Lentil Salad is a simple lentil salad that is loaded with Greek flavors and health benefits, noted Kerry Harris, nutrition manager at VacaValley.

Lentils are true super foods. They're loaded with protein, fiber, iron and more and they go well with strong flavors such as the Greek Dressing that will be served with the salad, said Kerry. In addition, the salad is "very easy to make and leftovers pack well for lunch."
