The Pardina lentil, also known as ‘Spanish Brown’, has a distinctive nutty flavor, and it holds its shape well after being cooked, making it perfect for salads.
Easy to prepare, delicious, and hearty, this salad is substantial enough to work as a complete meal, but also great as a healthy side dish with some chicken or seafood.
