    Mindy Stillion's Note:

    the lemon and mint are the secret to giving these basic lentils their middle eastern flavor.

      i have made this salad several times now and love it! i use the french puy lentils but don't cook them as long as the recipe states. i use dried mint, and also reduce the garlic since in this recipe it is not cooked. i founf that this makes great leftovers, the flavors blend and intensify. i plan to make this a lot over the summer.

      This was really good. I didn't know what to expect since it is my first experience with lentil salad, but it certainly won't be the last. The only change I made to the recipe was to lower the amount of oil. I do agree with one review that it is best served in smaller quantities since it is quite bold. I will be making this again.

      I liked this. It was easy to prepare as I had all of the ingredients on hand. I used mint AND fresh basil. I cut out 1 tablespoon each of the oil and lemon juice and it was just right. I brought the lentils to a boil and then turned them down to a very low simmer for 25 minutes. They were almost a little too soft but most of them held their shape really well. I poured ice water over them to stop the cooking process. Good recipe and good for you, too.
