IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

On our trip to Warsaw, Poland, a couple of years ago, we stumble upon this fantastic restaurant. You would have never know it was a restaurant if you were not looking around you. A large cobblestone porch lead us into this wonderful back yard with lots of tables, all very romantically set up. I am sadden that I cannot found the name of the place to share with all of you.

Our dinner was fantastic. I remember enjoying this salad. However, the chef never separated himself with the recipe, so I deconstructed the flavors, jot them down on my cell phone with the promise  to make it in my own kitchen.

Light, healthy and so easy to prepare. I used crimson lentils because I had them on hand, but black or green de Puy will be fine as well. No salt is used, by choice.

The recipe below is for 2. You can serve it in individual plates or on a large one. Or, of course augment the portions via the serving size  tab on the page

A playfulness between light sweet and pungent and brought together by a dash of olive oil.
