Method

  1. 1

    Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil, add the lentils and simmer uncovered for 25-30 minutes until just tender then drain into a sieve.

  2. 2

    Make the dressing by mixing the honey, vinegar, olive oil, garlic, thyme or rosemary, paprika and seasoning together in the base of a salad bowl with a fork until smooth. Add the hot lentils to the dressing and toss together.

  3. 3

    Refill the rinsed lentil pan with water, bring to the boil, add the broad beans and peas and cook for 3-4 minutes until just tender. Drain, then add to the lentils and toss together.

  4. 4

    Crumble the feta over the top, sprinkle with chopped parsley or mint or a mix of both and serve warm or cold with toasted ciabatta bread or pitta breads, if liked.

  5. 5

    Tips: This is light and healthy salad that tastes just as good the day after it is made. If you fancy serving with homemade croutons, simply drizzle a little olive oil over sliced ciabatta bread, cook until crisp and golden on a preheated griddle pan and cut into croutons.
