Lentils, like beans, are legumes. They come in many different colours and shapes and, as one of the first cultivated foods, have been a part of the global table since prehistoric times. Feel free to use whatever variety of lentil you like, as the various colours and crunchy textures make this a great year-round refrigerator salad. Feel free to substitute and experiment with what’s in season, storing this salad in the fridge until you’re ready to toss and serve on site.
