      I loved this salad. I made it for lunch today using green lentils. I ate half of the salad myself! It is so easy, yet so flavorful. I didn't change a thing and will be making this again. Thanks!

      this was a simple salad I liked it although I think this would be extra good with sprouted lentils to go along with the crunch from the jalapenos and bite from the vinegar. Made for ZWT 7 for Saucy Silverados

      Very good! I used canned lentils, and added a bit of spinach and light feta for a super fast lunch to take to work. I let it sit overnight in the fridge and it was great. Thanks for posting, I'll be making this again.
