  5. 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  6. Freshly ground pepper
  7. 1/2 cup thinly sliced radishes
  8. 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  1. In a medium saucepan, cover the lentils with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Simmer the lentils over low heat, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain and transfer to a bowl.
