    So simple.... but fresh-tasting, healthy and filling. This is a lovely way to eat lentils in the summer without making a hot soup. The cloves are very subtle. I think if you didn't read the recipe, you woudn't detect the clove flavor. The fresh parsley and scallions are a must. Don't skimp on them! (Or, sub cilantro for parsley.) On a whim, I added a bit of Dijon mustard to the lemon juice/olive oil dressing.... it was sooooo good! Thanx for sharing this recipe.
