I've found that this actually works better with canned lentils, instead of fresh. Also best to make the day ahead.

I made this in the morning. The flavors married nicely. I did add some crushed garlic (I add garlic to pretty much everything). This was a very fresh salad. Thank You. [made for AUS/NZ recipe swap #20, Sept. 2008].

I was already having lentil salad for lunch so doubled my lentils to make this salad as well. Unfortunately I didn't have fresh coriander so I used ground but this was still a lovely fresh tasting salad which really fills the gap until dinner time. Made for ZWT 4.

I made this early in the morning so it could chill for several hours. After chilling, the cumin and cilantro flavors were in full bloom! I used fat free yogurt and a little extra cucumber. Very nice salad when you want something healthy and different. I'll make this again. Thanx!
