Step by step

  1. Wash and drain lentils. Cook them in 3 cups of water until soft. Discard water and set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, cover frozen artichoke hearts with water, and cook on medium heat until soft (about 20 minutes).
  3. Mix all dressing ingredients.
  4. In a bowl, mix lentils with dressing. Add finely chopped spring onions, sliced sun-dried tomatoes, shredded carrots, sliced cherry tomatoes, and finely chopped parsley.
  5. When artichokes have cooled, slice them into cubes or thin strips and add them to the salad. Cover and store in the fridge until serving time.
  6. Right before serving, add some hand-torn lettuce leaves to the salad and mix.
