This wasn't bad but I did feel it was a little bland. Something is missing, in my opinion, but I'm not sure what. However, it is easy to make, very healthy and I think with a couple more spices or herbs it could be really special.
This salad was fun to play with ... and with great results. I decided to make it all raw by sprouting the lentils for a couple of days beforehand. Then, I simply shred the parsnip, carrot, onion and parsley all together, added that to the sprouted lentils and added the dressing. For us, this was awesome! Thank you again, Mirj, for a great meal!
Nice light flavor, would recommend using slightly less red wine vinegar than called for and to also toss it occasionally while it marinates as the vinaigrette kept pooling at the bottom of the bowl (marinading the salad bottom but not the top). Adding a little ground thyme or rosemary to the vinaigrette is tasty too.
