my go-to lunch

i make this lentil salad ALL the time.  it's healthy, cheap and well, damn good. add an egg over medium and you're in business!

long beach lentil salad
1 package steamed lentils (trader joes...near the other packaged veggies.  already cooked easiness)
1 cut up bell pepper- i prefer yellow, orange or red for this salad
1 onion, chopped and sauteed in a little olive oil
1/2 c. cubbed sheep feta from trader joes (the best they have by far...comes in a lg. block)
olive oil
smoked paprika
chopped fresh italian parsley...or any other fresh herb you have laying around

combine all, season to taste and wa-la!
