  • Meanwhile, place eggs in a small saucepan; cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil; remove from heat and cover. Let stand 12 minutes. Drain, and rinse under cold water. Peel eggs; chop roughly.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar and oil. Add lentils, cucumber, parsley, and onion; season with salt and pepper. Toss well to coat with dressing. Let cool to room temperature, or serve chilled, topped with chopped eggs.

On the show last week, Lucinda made a lentil salad, but it was not this recipe. Hers had bacon; no eggs. I would love to have the recipe she made on the show. Thank you!
