This is fresh, delicious, and easy to make. I really enjoyed the combination of flavors. Mint is not something I would have normally added to a lentil dish, but it was perfect. I will definitely make this again!

Directions

  1. Place lentils in a large salad bowl.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large frying pan set over medium heat. Add onion, carrots and garlic. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in jalapeño, pepper and peas. Sauté for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add to lentils.
  3. In a bowl, whisk 1 tablespoon oil with lemon juice, cumin, salt and cayenne, if using. Stir into salad. Taste and add more salt, if needed.
  4. If making ahead, cover and refrigerate up to 2 days, then add fresh herbs, if using, just before serving.
