The salad is delicious!

Delicious recipe - and SO simple to prepare! Hubby was dubious about the lentils, but really enjoyed them in the end. This will no doubt become a regular in our household.

Tried the recipe with couscous instead of lentils in the salad...was a huge success!

Hi, thanks for posting this. Had the dish today and thought it was wonderful... it put lentils in a whole new light. Very fresh and tasty, also really really (can't stress it enough) really straight forward to prepare. Went without the houmous for the lamb, just a bit of seasoning and cooked it the way I prefer (browning in a pan then a hot oven for 6mins or so). Very good option for a filling but light lunch.
