Puy Lentil, Farro and Pomegranate Salad
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 celery stalk, finely diced
1/3 cup parsley, finely chopped
1/4 cup coriander, finely chopped
1/4 cup mint, finely chopped
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, lightly toasted
1/2 cup, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
2 Tbsp Pinoli Pinenuts, lightly toasted
1/3 cup Natural Currants
2 Tbsp lemon juice
3/4 cup Greek style yoghurt
1 tsp ground cumin
Cook the Puy lentils and farro in separate saucepans of boiling water for 15-20 minutes until just tender to the bite. Drain well and allow to cool.
Combine the lentils and farro with the onion, celery, herbs, seeds, nuts, capers and currants together in a large bowl. Toss well to combine.
Mix together the lemon juice, olive oil and pomegranate molasses, season generously with sea salt. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss again. Combine the yoghurt and cumin and add a pinch of salt. Remove the seeds from the pomegranate. Top the salad with a mound of cumin yoghurt and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds.
Excess salad can be stored for several days in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
