    Karyl Lee's Note:

    This slightly exotic lentil salad can be made many ways, curried is just the one I like best. The cook time is for the lentils, they must be done to your preference. The vegetables are meant to be raw.

      The flavors in this are really good. I found, however, with a full pound of lentils, I needed to double the amounts of vegetables and dressing so they didn't get lost. I probably tripled the amount of currants because the little bursts of sweetness tasted so good! I advise watching your lentils closely while they cook - I think I overcooked mine and they were pretty mushy when I mixed everything together, which of course only affected the presentation and not the taste. Thanks!

      It isn't really clear what the directions are for cooking the vegetables. I put the celery, and carrots (I added these to the recipe) in with the lentils and I sauted the onion with some minced garlic. The spice was nice and mild, but I felt like it could have used a little something else (maybe a little cinnamon?) I used raisins instead of currants. I just love the raisins in it. Thanks for sharing Karyl Lee.
