A great vegetarian dish. I liked the flavoring from the mint, vinegar and onion. I made the recipe with orzo (couldn't find orecchiette) and cooked the lentils from scratch (although this increased the prep time). I used the online tool to cut the serving size and found that I needed to increase the vinegar for my tastes. I made this for the Aussie/NZ Sept 09 recipe swap.

I love this salad too! My family beg for me to make this. Don't change a thing - it's a perfect balance of flavours
