Anna: Mr Stern offers 3 options for this recipe. I chose the one with smoked salmon and bacon as it sounded delicious.
Peter: Cold lentils could taste a lot worse than this.
Anna: Lentils are served cold all the time!
Peter: I haven’t had them before. But these are good.
Anna: Puy lentils. You’ve got to love them.
Peter: I wouldn’t have thought about having bacon and smoked salmon together.
Anna: Did it make it too salty for you?
Peter: No, I like it salty. I could have eaten a bit more… being a salad it’s virtually calorie free surely?
Anna: Well I did up the quantities of salmon and bacon slightly otherwise you may have thought we were just having a starter for dinner. Unfortunately both bacon and smoked salmon aren’t well-known for their low-calorie properties. But it is a carb-free salad. And pretty filling I have to say. I think you would like the version with chipolatas.
Peter: Clearly this is a flexible salad. I like the sound of chipolatas.
Anna: So you would like me to do this again?
Peter: I wouldn’t say no.
