Yemiser Selatta
(Lentil Salad)


1 cup lentils, dried
3 tablespoons wine vinegar, red
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 pepper, black
8 large shallot, large
2 Anaheim chillies


Peel shallots, then cut lengthwise in half. Seed chiles and cut into 1" x ⅛" strips. Wash lentils under cold running water. Simmer them in lightly salted water for 25 to 30 minutes, or until tender but still somewhat firm. Drain and rinse under cold water to cool them. Drain again and set aside.

Combine vinegar, oil, salt and pepper in a bowl, beating with a whisk. Add lentils, shallots and chillies. Stir gently to mix well. Marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving, stirring periodically.
