    Scots Lass/Cairo's Note:

    This is an unusual salad which contains green or brown lentils. For best results lentils should be soaked overnight if possible. It is a great source of protein, and can be served along with other vegetable dishes. I remember reading that the protein intake from pulses is doubled if served at the same time as a yoghurt-based dish, and so I tend to serve a yoghurt salad as a further accompaniment
