Cooking guidelines

The lentils should be cooked based on the package directions.

As the lentils are being cooked, herbs, red onion, avocados, radishes and cucumbers have to be sliced or chopped

The feta needs to be crumbled.

You must take a large mixing bowl.

Lime juice, honey, vinegar and soy sauce should be whisked together in the bowl.

You have to keep on whisking in a constant way and the stream in the olive oil must be slowed until the dressing gets thickened and emulsified.

Pepper and salt have to be used for seasoning to taste.

The lentils have to be drained well and they need to be tossed in the dressing. (You have to toss while keeping them warm)

Other ingredients have to be tossed into the lentils in a gentle way.

You have to reserve the feta cheese and herbs for garnishing purposes.

After mixing everything properly and allowing those to get coated in the dressing in an even way, feta and herbs can be used for garnishing.

You can serve this salad at room temperature or chilled.
