I made a lentil salad to go with our BBQ on Bank Holiday Monday. It was a hit, but, I forgot to take a photo before we ate it up. Mine had beautiful purple chive flowers. So use your imagination and put those lovely flowers in where you see purple kale in the photo.

SHALLOT, 1 large, finely chopped (¼ cup)


CUCUMBER diced (1 cup)
