This was on the set menu where I had a quick lunch after a meeting in Lyon. It was followed by my best shoe bargain ever and so sticks in my mind as the perfect salad!


  • 400 g tinned cooked lentils, drained and rinsed
  • ½ red onion, sliced wafer thin
  • 2


  1. Mix all the ingredients, apart from the salad leaves and season to taste. This can be made up to 2 days ahead and stored in the fridge.
  2. Combine with the salad leaves in a large serving bowl just before you are ready to eat.
