A refreshing salad with cucumber

A refreshing salad with cucumbers and lentils can be eaten as a stand-alone meal or as a side dish with meat. It is made quickly, and the only thing that can take you a little time is cooking the lentils. This salad is great when it is hot weather, and because of the variety of foods, it is better than the famous tzatziki salad. You can also serve it with a piece of homemade, hot bread.
