This salad is just excellent. The lentils cooked more quickly than I expected so they were a bit softer than I would have preferred but no harm. The salad was still beautifully textured and deliciously seasoned. I used evelyn/athens' zaatar Za'atar since this recipe only calls for 1/2 tsp and I wanted to avoid spending money on a jar of seasoning that was going to lose its potency in a couple of months. The instructions don't mention the addition of the salt and bay leaf so I assumed they were to be added to the boiling lentils. Dh wants to make sure I tell everyone that the salad makes an excellent filling for tortillas warmed in the microwave. Any recipe that gets Dh to relish lentils is definitely a keeper. Thanks, Mizzy.
very good recipe to work with. i put in diced yellow pepper, green onion, cucumber and tomato. I also threw in some leftover orzo and fresh thyme. yummy. Thanks!
Fantastic recipe. I increased the feta because I love it so much. This gets even better after one or two days in the fridge. I've had it for lunch and as a side to a couple meals now. Definitely include the mint. It adds a lot to this salad.
Great salad. I didn't have any parsley, but I did have mint. Other than that I followed exactly. Delicious and protein rich. Thank you!
This is a very fresh tasting salad and leaves you feeling as if you did something very good for yourself. Would be excellent with some toasted pita bread and a small scoop of labneh. Great way to end the new year and start the new.
I added all the suggestions listed previously, along with some red onion, extra green onions, and some orange bell pepper. I dressed it simply with lemon juice, olive oil, pressed garlic, salt and pepper.
This was really delicious, and so adaptable to whatever you have on hand. I added some lightly blanched broccoli and assorted bean sprouts. I reduced amount of feta (calorie concerns!) and it still tased great. I stirred the lentils through while they were still warm and the feta became nicely melty. Have also made it with a lemony/garlicky dressing - delish!
