    amanda l b's Note:

    I love Puy lentils - they're nutty tasting with a lovely texture. If you can't get Puy lentils, brown or green work equally well. This salad is a great, healthy accompaniment to a meal, or as a dish in it's own right. The recipe is from Stephanie Alexander's original edition of the cook's companion. I've adapted it slightly.
