Stuff to know
This quantity will be about 4-5 portions.
If using cooked lentils, they only need to be reheated.
Don´t add to much salt since the feta and olives are salty already.
To add extra flavour, add some fresh basil to the lentil salad.
The cherry tomatoes, olives, sun dried tomatoes and feta do not need to be cooked so only add them at the very end.
