I often make this, but more often than not I just use some leftover mint sauce as that is all the other ingredients are and saves the faff

This is just scrummy! I make it using low fat feta and Lamb Steaks to knock the calories & Sat Fat down but I don't think this takes anything away from it at all. There are only two of us but I still make the full salad then we can both take it for lunch the next day. Oh and if you have time cook the lentils yourself for a fraction of the cost - it will take about an extra 45 minutes but its worth a bit of forward planning to save all that money to me! One of my regulars now! Fab!

This is so incredibly quick to make so gets 5 stars for that alone! Makes a perfect mid-week meal. I used sweetener instead of sugar & that worked fine. Very tasty!

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.
