    MrsSPheonix's Note:

    We made this tonight for dinner and loved it so I thought I'd share. Easy, simple and delicious. I also think it could become like a "mother" or base recipe & to it you could add smoked chicken, tuna, other legumes, even different salad or vegetables. Source: Good Taste, December 2007

      I have been so unlucky with recipes lately that I had grown rather defeated - but this salad is substantial, refreshing, and really healthy. the garam marsala and ginger give it a subtle heat. I highly endorse...but cut your green beans to bite size pieces. mine were awkwardly long.

      Made a half batch of this delicious salad, using one tin of brown lentils and the full amount of green beans. The garam masala adds a wonderful tang that is perfectly countered by the yoghurt. Yummo!
