Although 'creamy' tells us it probably isn't healthy, these combined healthy ingredients provide a creamy texture that I just can't resist. After wanting to recreate a lentil salad I had from a local market, I realized I had made a salad more delicious than I had intended and it was nothing like I had been attempting to make. This salad is great as a side dish, a main salad, served on top of brown rice, or on top of a bed of lettuce.

Like the flavors, like that it is a cold salad, so it is good to take to get-togethers. Worked well with reduced fat feta cheese, and does not need, in my opinion, so much olive oil -- so then it ends up healthier.

Simple, light and very good. I could eat a pile of this. I will make it again with a bit of lemon or vinegar, but it is recommended to make as is first. This would be very good wrapped in a pita or served with pita chips.

This recipe is very good and fresh. I did use fresh Dill instead of the dried as called for in the recipe. I'll make this again.
