Altered ingredient amounts. This is a great salad! I gave this recipe four stars for quickness since I processed my veggies through a food processor. I added extra coriander and lime, which was great. My four year old liked to eat the lentils, but nothing else. My husband and I love it! - 24 Jul 2008

Altered ingredient amounts. Easy to make, sort of a mix betweeen salsa and bean salad. Very pretty and refreshing. Our kids liked it, but we left out the chillies. - 24 Jul 2008
