I love lentils which are a great low-glycemic and high fiber food even though they aren't super low in carbs. And when it's summer and I have those fresh herbs growing right outside my front door, I love to make salads like this Lebanese Lentil Salad with Garlic and Herbs. Recently I made the salad again and used quite a bit more herbs than I had when I first posted the recipe (back in 2010!) and decided I had to update the blog with this new and improved version. Of course if you don't have fresh herbs readily available and have to buy them, you can certainly make the salad with less herbs than I used and it will still be good!
The recipe was adapted from Garlicky Lebanese Lentil Salad in Saveur October 2010, but I changed the proportions a bit the first time I made it for a more lemony salad and then changed it again for one with more herbs. And through the years I've made this with several types of lentils and all were good. When I made this with Jake to take the new photos, we couldn't stop remarking about how good it was, and all that night I caught myself taking little tastes from the fridge. If you like lentils, garlic, and herbs, I promise you'll make this salad over and over!
