Feta Cilantro Salad

Okay, something a bit more "frou-frou," or light and healthy. Mostly because it's getting hot outside! I'm starting to wonder if I should just write recipes for Trader Joe's fliers. Stilll, you could re-create this from any store, I think.

1 serving Trader Joe's Harvest Grains, cooked and rinsed (or other mixed grains in a bag... this one contains quinoa)
1/2 package prepared lentils, or about a cup cooked and drained
1/2 bunch diced scallions
1 medium tomato, diced
1 orange bell pepper, diced
1 tub crumbled feta cheese
1/2 bag cashews or cashew pieces
1/2 bottle cilantro dressing (I used TJ's, natch)
salt and pepper

Pretty simple... Had a nice crunch, and lots of textures -- very refreshing. Next time I will add some Greek or Sicilian olives, I think, if I have them on hand.
