DIRECTIONS

  • Pick lentils over for any small stones; rinse and soak 2 hours in tepid water; drain.
  • Place lentils and water in a large saucepan; heat to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low; cover and cook until lentils are tender, but still firm, 20-25 minutes.
  • Rinse the lentils with cold water; drain.
  • Mix together the lentils, apple, bell pepper, jalapeno, parsley, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar and salt in a large bowl; chill until serving time.
  • Just before serving, heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ginger and coconut; cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle ginger and coconut over the lentils.
