  • 1 tbsp white wine or cider vinegar
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced into rings
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsp mango chutney
  • handful coriander, roughly chopped
  • 250g cherry vine tomato, halved

Method

  1. Boil the lentils following pack instructions, drain, rinse well, then drain thoroughly.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the citrus juices, vinegar and a pinch of salt in a salad bowl, then toss in the onion rings – after a few mins they will soften and turn pink. Whisk together the oil, cumin, garlic and chutney, then toss into the onions with the cooled lentils, coriander, tomatoes, spinach and plenty of seasoning.

This is a great school lunch box filler with slices of home cooked ham

Served with the Indian spiced lamb and rice. There were no leftovers of either of them! Used 250 g dried lentils. Kept the onions separate as one of the guests did not eat onions and it all worked well.

Used 400g tinned lentils - super tasty and very easy. Too much onion for my taste so will use half next time. Served as an accompaniment to roast chicken and it served three.

Even my partner who professes a general aversion to all things salad loved this!

Loved this salad. I used spring onions instead of red onion and it worked fine. The dressing is fabulous.

This is delicious. When tomatoes are out of season, try substituting lightly steamed diced carrot.

I made this for my mum & I for lunch and added some beetroot and piled it all on top of some serrano ham. It was delicious. The dressing is really tasty. All in all a good combination Also I used a tin of lentils which worked out fine for us! I can't be fuffing around cooking them!

Excellent salad. Made for a summer gathering and was devoured by vegetarians and carnivores. Always a good sign.
