Summer Lentils ♥ A Great Summer Salad Recipe

A hearty lentil salad that's so packed with vegetables it might even be called the "Great Big Vegetable Salad with a Few Lentils Thrown In Just for Fun". Great crunch. No mayonnaise so perfect for picnics and outdoor meals. Low carb, thanks to all the vegetables. Very Weight Watchers Friendly.
