      This is an excellent salad for people, and I am one of them, who like the licoricey flavor of fennel, and also are very fond of parsley. I made the dressing as given here, and cooked the lentils (brown ones) according to the recipe. I did make a few additions and substitutions in the vegetables - green onion for the red, and daikon instead of celery. I also added thinly sliced cucumber and a fresh tomato. I found a few hours in the fridge made the flavor even better, with the flavors mixing and mellowing. Thank you very much for sharing another fine recipe with us.

      a very nice salad, i had to use a green pepper instead of red, yellow instead of red onion, and used my own dressing (it was the same but had a little honey in it). I will deffinetly make this again. Even my legume hating 6 y/o son liked it!
