I think this salad is yummy. The lentils only need to simmer for about 20-30 minutes, and that's why other reviewers didn't like the texture. I add fresh thyme along with basil and parsley, and this time I tossed in some diced raw zucchini, which added nice color and texture. I also use more vinegar than called for and some lemon juice. This salad is best if it sits for a while before serving, and it keeps for a day or two.

This is a great simple, refreshing summer salad. Love it! You can increase or decrease the vinegar to taste. Make sure to not overcook the lentils; they may need less time than the recipe states.

This is a very simple, and tasty recipe - and so good for you. I serve it on a bed of arugula and top it with tomatoes and feta. Fantastic. Add some flank steak and you have yourself a meal.
