    A very Middle-Eastern style salad dish, full of olives, mint and dill. It's great as a side dish at a barbecue or party, or as a light meal.

    • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 3/4 cup (150g) dried brown lentils, rinsed and drained
    • 1/3 cup (85ml) red wine vinegar

    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes; drain. Transfer pasta into a large bowl and mix in 1 tablespoon olive oil; cover, and refrigerate until cool.
    2. Place lentils into a small saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat until lentils are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
    3. Combine the remaining olive oil, vinegar and garlic in a small bowl.
    4. Remove pasta from refrigerator; add lentils, oil mixture, olives, feta cheese, red onion, mint and dill; stir until thoroughly blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
