Mediterranean Lentil Salad (Mujadara)

Hello,

I am a big fan of Green Cuisine, whenever I like to eat healthy food I prefer to go with Mediterranean dishes. When I was in North Carolina I used to visit Aladin and Greek Fiesta for Mediterranean food, surprisingly I loved lentil salad with lot of hummus and salad dressings. Aladin serves one of the best Salads in town. Recently, I tried to made it at home. As this was my first time making Lentil salad at home I bought ready tin for lentils, prepared hummus with little garlic and chopped salad. It came out so well so, thought to share this recipe with you guys.

Ingredients:
