The Garden Supreme
Heat a frying pan over high heat, coat the pan with a small amount of oil, then lay the sliced mozzarella in the pan and sear briefly. Leave it in the pan just long enough to brown the outside without melting it. Let it cool a bit, then cube it. Layer the ingredients wet to dry. For the dressing, add olive oil, red wine vinegar, pepper, and salt to the bottom of the jar. Next, add lentils, tomatoes, lettuce, red onions, avocado, and mozzarella. Refrigerate up to a week. Shake before you eat, and enjoy!
