I was first introduced to this recipe a couple of years ago by my good friend Celia. It's not only healthy and nourishing, but also a delicious and colourful meal with an interesting combination of flavors. Lentils are a good source of protein, it has a high iron content, and have been selected by Health magazine as one of the five healthiest food types.
I have just read an interesting variation on 'the merchant gourmet' website; they add crisp Serrano ham to the salad, and I think perhaps I'll try that next time round. It's great for all seasons and once you've tasted this, you'll definitely want to make it again and again. Enjoy!
