• 1⁄4 cup red bell pepper , diced
• 1⁄4 cup fresh parsley, chopped 
• 1⁄4 cup kalamta or Spanish olives, coarsely chopped
• 1⁄4 cup Savory Vinaigrette 

1. Cook lentils according to package directions; drain.

2. Combine lentils and remaining ingredients in a large bowl; toss gently. Cover and chill for 30 minutes or overnight. Serve at room temperature.
