Made this for my hubby last night. He really enjoyed it but I wasn't as enamored. Was quick and easy and tasted fine but I wasn't blown away by it. Probably wouldn't make again.

Loved it! Thought it might have tasted plain but the white wine vinegar and sugar with the fresh mint and cheese tastes amazing mixed with the lentils/peas. Perfect accompaniment to the lamb. Definitely recommend.

Delicious, suprisingly so. I also serve with lamb sausages and added a touch of tobasco and parsley.

The dressing complemented both the lamb and lentils really well, the whole family ate this and i don't usually get away with lentils so well - but they took seconds on their plate after the initial one spoonful to try! Lentils great as a side salad as well.

This is by far our favourite dish just now! We usually have it with quinoa as well.

I didn't do the lamb but used the ingredients for the salad and mixed them into the couscous (only used a teaspoon of sugar though). It was delicious served with sausages.
Next time I might try mint sauce as Debbie did instead of the dressing ingredients. Definite hit.

Really tasty - I didn't have enough green lentils so use sweetcorn to make it up which worked okay. Also used mint sauce instead of fresh mint. Will definitely make this again.
