I just made this is big salad to take to a pot luck dinner. It makes a huge bowlful. If you just want to make it for yourself, use 1 cup dry lentils (or open a can!) and add less veges.

500 grams or 3 cups brown lentils
1 red onion
1 stick celery
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 green pepper
8 tomatoes
½ cup olive oil
Fresh mint
Fresh parsley
Garlic salt

Wash the lentils and place in large pan with plenty of water. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until cooked. Drain.

Chop the onion, celery, peppers and tomatoes – quite finely, because you want them to mix in with the lentils.

Finely chop the herbs.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.

Season to taste with the garlic salt.
