Lentil salad

For Mom-
Lime dressing:
zest of one lime, make sure you wash it!
juice on one lime
1/3 cup olive oil
1 T honey, maple syrup or sugar if that's all you got
1 T sweet dried basil
salt, pepper

small dice one zucchini
small dice one roasted red pepper
5-7 basil leaves, sliced thin
3-4 cups cooked lentils (Trader Joe's sells them cooked to perfection, if you cook them yourself, don't overcook them)
4 T goat cheese, slice it then crumble

In a bowl mix the dressing up and toss in the zucchini, let it sit until you are done
Toss lentils with the rest of the salad mix, leaving out 1/2 of the cheese and a few strands of basil.
Mix in dressing and zucchini, top with the last of the cheese and basil.
Serve cold or room temp.
