A very tasty salad. I LOVE persian food and I love lentils, so I was excited to try this combo. I went with NOOSH's suggestion to add fresh mint. I wasn't sure how much to add so at first I minced about 7-8 mint leaves. It gave just a slight hint of flavor (barely noticeable), so I added another 7-8 leaves and it was perfect! I highly recommend this addition. It gives the salad such a fresh flavor. I have a hard time getting hubby to eat any sort of salad, and with his first bite he said WOW, this is really good! The only change I made was to use way less red onion than called for. I ended up using about 1/4 onion, since most red onions are huge. Thanks for the recipe NOOSH!

This was SO GOOD!! If I'd had leftovers I would've eaten it for breakfast. I used cooked dried lentils and red wine vinegar and totally forgot to add oil, but I didn't miss it (and I like oil!) thinking I might add pita chips next time, like fattoush...

This was really good. I drained off the excess dressing before I served it and added finely chopped mint (like other reviewers had suggested). The mint was a great additional and I will include it again.
