    I have been wanting to do something with the dried lentils in my pantry. They are leftover from “soup” season aka winter. I will definitely have to try this!

    Adam grew up eating lentils and can’t get enough of them, although it took me a while to warm up to them, but I have come to appreciate them especially as he insists on lentils on New Year’s day in homage to his years in Italy. This is a delicious preparation, and beautifully photographed. Glad to have run across your blog on Tastespotting!

    I’m definitely going to be trying this for a nice healthy lunch! And p.s., lentils do come in a can! Goya of course ;)

    Hello! I would also like to know how many servings this makes and if you have the nutrition information?

    What kind of lentils do you use in the recipe: French,Spanish,brown…?

    This looks amazing! I would personally replace the carrots with diced tomato as I’m not big on the crunch!
    Will try this tomorrow!

    I tried to cook the lentils as instructed but I ended up burning everything. Any suggestions? What kind of lentils did you use? Thanks.

    1 cup dried lentils gives 2 to 2 1/2 cups cooked lentils. Average serving size is 1/2 cup of cooked lentils per person.

    In our house…not quite…big eaters. :-)
    So adjust recipe according to your desired serving size per person.

    Just made this today – it’s in the refrigerator melding…can’t wait to eat. Thanks for the recipe lacey.

    Joe – cover with a good amount of water and monitor for water absorption. Add more if necessary – keep an eye on the water level while boiling. Drain lentils when cooked to desired softness.

    I loved this salad. I used leftover cooked lentils. I also added chopped cucumber and cilantro.

    Hi, its pleasant paragraph concerning media print, we all know media is a fantastic source of data.

    This is delicious! I just made it for the second time. I cheated a little bit with pre-cut veggies at Trader Joe’s that come in a package together (carrots, onions, celery). I also used Trader Joe’s pre-cooked lentils in the fridge section. Super quick & easy to make a healthy lunch for work! Thanks for the recipe!
