Salmon over Warm Lentil, Apple & Walnut Salad-an Awkward Recipe


Sometimes you try recipes and they just aren't very easy to execute. I think it is important to share the occasional flop along with all the great recipes I have found. I came across a recipe last week that I thought sounded delicious and with a quick cursory review, did not look too difficult to do-Salmon over Warm Lentil, Apple & Walnut Salad. In actually doing it, though, I found it to be very "awkward" to follow. Some of the steps didn't make much sense and were hard to do. For instance, it calls for cooking the onion whole and then later on in the recipe it calls for you to cut up the steaming onion...really?!? Making the lentil puree also seemed to be extra work for little benefit since the puree comes out an ugly, unappetizing grey color. So, I do not recommend this recipe and it will not be a repeat for us. The search will continue for a similar recipe that works!

Oh well, you win some and then...you lose some.
