  • Yum yum maybe use Stevia instead of sugar. - 4/12/14

  • Honest to God, I don't recall having ever made/eaten bulgur. I'm going to do this. - 3/27/14

  • Supper, all the things I love! - 8/28/13

  • This is going to sound like a commercial, but for an easy way to do all the chopping, I bought a Vidalia Chopper -- it's got a grate that you press down on and it chops or dices veggies in seconds! I love mine, and use it for chopping just about everything. $19 at Bed Bath and Beyond. - 6/18/13

  • Look like I will be making this. I love salad but I have to be careful because of my stomach. - 5/12/13

  • Thank you chef Meg, I love lentil soup; but now I could eat them in a salad. I can't wait to taste it. - 7/12/12

  • I love that you teach us about the cutting and herbs in this dish! I can't wait to try this and add my twist! Thank you for all the wonderful additions suggestions! I love capers and can't wait to add them to this dish!

  • I do love this salad :) I love cucumber, klamata olives, cherry tomato's halved, feta, basil, Myers lemon juice and zest (no sugar), parsley, garlic :) Quinoa is a great substitution for wheat free-ers in this dish - 4/12/12

  • GREAT video! I learned so much. (Who knew salting while cooking instead of afterward toughened lentils?) Thanks for all the tips and demonstrations (like chopping the herbs and choosing which parsley to use for cooking vs garnish). Looking forward to trying this recipe. - 4/5/12

  • Chef Meg! You are the BEST! Love your cooking style. - 4/5/12

  • Very tasty. Not sure why it needs the extra protien of the chicken. It's good the video told how large the serving is as the recipe does not. Mine made more than 8 servings. Maybe used a different yellow dal; it took a good half hour to cook. Also found it too oily & doubled the lemon juice. - 2/26/12

  • I make a very similar salad with Quinoa or Brown rice and with out the lentils. I want to try this version. I add shelled, steamed edemame for added crunch and protein. Another thing we love with this is adding a little sweet like diced dried cherries, raisins or craisins. - 2/25/12

  • Definitely making this! My vegetarian daughter will LOVE it! - 2/25/12

  • This was such a fun video to watch and I just ate my first recipe of it....it is sooo....yummy! I'm serving it with the roasted chicken recipe tomorrow for a tailgate party. I use roasted pine nuts instead of the walnuts, wonderful flavors and will be even better tomorrow! - 10/14/11
