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!

I didn't have any mint available and ended up using cilantro, it still turned out amazing.
