Ingredients List





  1. If using dry lentils, place the lentils in boiling, salted water and simmer (uncovered) for approx. 15 minutes until just soft, drain and allow to cool.
  2. Meanwhile make the dressing by combining all the ingredients and blending, either in a high-speed blender, or with a stick blender.  Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Add a splash of water if you want your dressing thinner.
  3. Halve the peaches, remove the stone and cut into thick slices. Heat the griddle pan to medium/high, and griddle the peach slices in batches for approx. 2 minutes on each side.  Remove and set aside.
  4. To serve, stir a few spoonfuls of the dressing through the lentils. Check and adjust seasoning.  Divide between four plates.  Add the cucumber, olives, peaches and parsley and top with more of the dressing.


If you don’t have a non-stick griddle pan, you could also grill the peach slices under a regular oven grill, until just starting to char.
