Lentil Salad, 4 Traditional Variations

45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
13 ingredients
6-8 servings
This recipe comes to me by way of "Olive Trees and Honey" by Gil Marks, a beautiful vegetarian world-view cookbook. See the bottom of the recipe, in the last few numbered steps, for the various traditions. The first version is Sephardic, a Jewish/Spanish variation, and is called "Salata de Lentejas."
