Rinse lentils. Put in saucepan with enough water
to cover. Add bay leaf, basil, and one clove garlic. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add celery and onion, cover and simmer til lentils are tender.
Drain and discard bay leaf and garlic clove.
Put lentils, celery and onions in a serving bowl. Add chives and feta cheese.

Pour over lentil salad and toss. Let stand for 2 hours at room temp tossing

Roselin, when I saw your post I almost didn't read it because it sounded weird. I'm glad I did read it because I just made some and it's really, really good. Thanks for the recipe.

I think this sounds delicious, and it is a welcome change from the heavy recipes loaded with calories, and lacking fiber usually seen on this forum. I will definitely try it (though will cut back on the oil!)
