Ingredients

For the salad:
  • 200g Puy lentils
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • 1-2 cooked beetroot, peeled
  • 1-2 handfuls of baby salad leaves
  • 200g goats’ cheese
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 x 20g pack cress, picked
For the dill vinaigrette:
  • ½ bunch of dill
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • a pinch of sugar

Step by step

Get ahead

Cook the lentils up to a few hours ahead. Make the vinaigrette up to an hour ahead.

  1. Wash the lentils under cold running water, then put them into a large pan with the bay leaf, thyme and a generous pinch of salt. Cover the lentils with at least double their volume of boiling water and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until tender.

  2. Meanwhile, make the vinaigrette by whizzing the dill (including the stalks) in a blender with all the other ingredients.

  3. Use a mandolin or a sharp knife to thinly slice the beetroot. Drain the lentils and discard the bay leaf and thyme.

    Tip

    If time's tight you could always use a pouch of ready-cooked lentils instead.

  4. To assemble, arrange the salad leaves and beetroot slices on a platter, scatter over the lentils and crumble over the goats’ cheese. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and a little extra-virgin olive oil; finish with a sprinkling of salt and pepper and the cress.
