Easy Lentil Salad

After being gone for almost 10 days, I came home to a fairly empty refrigerator.  I was trying to come up with something to make for lunch, using what I had left in my crisper drawer and cupboards.  I came up with this lentil salad, which turned out to be quite good.  This serves 4 as a main dish.

2 cans lentils (I used Eden brand for their BPA-free cans)
1/2 english cucumber, chopped
10-12 baby carrots, chopped
1 small can black olives, sliced
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes in olive oil, chopped (the ones I used are from Costco, and also have some garlic and herbs in the olive oil)
2 green onions (scallions), chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
Sea salt to taste
Black pepper to taste

Combine all items together in a large bowl and refrigerate for a few hours.  You could also put this salad on a bed of any type of greens, and it would be equally tasty.
