"Great side dish. French lentils (also called puy lentils) have a wonderful earthy flavor. You can't substitute regular green/brown lentils. They are expensive but usually affordable at your local food co-op. Goat cheese has a creamier texture than feta. I like to add grape tomatoes." — DEBMCE4

I loved this recipe. I made it as written and my husband ate all the leftovers while I was at work the next day! I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a new side dish!
So easy to make and delicious!! I am no cook and I pulled this off with my man (who can cook) and it was a huge success. New family favorite now!
I love this recipe, it was wonderful. I followed the recipes but, I did omitted the grape tomatoes. My husband, who is 100% meat and potatoes kinda guy, he said I understand why you like it. That pretty much means he wont eat it but it wasn't horrible. This is recipe is one you can make and keep in the fridge. It stores well so you can have a yummy pre-made side dish for the next few days.
I followed this recipe exactly, i did really like the french lentils.I did not like the flavor. I have used sherry vinegar before but I think this recipe could use something warmer in flavor.
