I finally got around to making this, and we were not disappointed! I made it with a few modifications: one whole onion, no garlic, no olives, one whole green pepper, a pint of cherry tomatoes (halved) instead of the roma, caraway for the fennel, basil for the oregano. Thanks for a delicious, and nutritious summer meal.
This is tasty! I loved it but DH is not a lentil fan so he did not. He was in the minority though! I don't know if it made a difference but I could not get brown lentils here so used red. It was excellent with the fresh spinach. Made for ZWT4
This made a great main-dish salad with some fresh bread on the side. The combination of spices was very well-chosen. My husband's favorite part was the flavor of the olives, and I really enjoyed the feta.
I planned this for a quick lunch so prepared the lentils the night before and chilled. It made assembling the salads quick & easy the next day. I liked how colorful this was with all of the bright veggies and they really perked up what could have been a blah looking salad. I also liked the fact that spices were included in the cooking liquid of the lentils. I think they made a nice addition to the flavor. I would make this again. Good luck in the contest!
This was very original and quite pleasing. Directions were easy to follow. The feta cheese adds something very special as the tastes blend in your mouth.
