Bruschetta Lentil Dip

Bruschetta Lentil Dip

Bruschetta Lentil Dip with feta cheese is yummy, healthy, and super easy to make!  When I first tried this dip, Cynthia made it for a Groundhog Day party.  Recently, I also tried it at the Trader Joe’s sample station.  It is a perfect potluck dip, so I had to make it!

It makes a big batch, which is great for a larger crowd.


1 container of your favorite bruschetta

1 lb. of steamed lentils (Trader Joe’s has them ready to go in their deli/salad section)

8 ozs feta cheese, cut into cubes

Crackers or tortilla chips

In a large bowl, mix the bruschetta and lentils.  Gently toss in the feta cubes.  They will fall apart slightly, but that’s okay.  Serve with crackers or tortilla chips.  Done!  You’re ready for potluck time!


Taco Salad

This is a simple and yummy Taco Salad recipe!

You can make the meat and salad mixtures separately and then toss together with chips right before potluck time!  Thank you to Joyce for sharing this recipe!

Chili powder



Tomatoes, chopped

Lettuce, chopped to bite size

Sliced olives
