Feta and Puy Lentil Salad

Posted on Updated on

One of the most challenging assignments we have had was to make a series of photos to illustrate a recipe. Challenging as you had to make the pictures interesting and appetising and deal with photographing in a kitchen.

Here is the illustrated recipe, comments are welcomed:

Feta and Puy Lentil Salad:

200 g feta cheese
juice of one large lemon
4-5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
a bunch of fresh mint, chopped
300g Puy lentils
3 cloves garlic, flattened but not peeled
2 bay leaves

Break up the feta and let it sit in the lemon juice and half the olive oil.

Tip the lentils in a large saucepan of water, add the garlic and the bay leaves and cook for 20-25 minutes or until tender. They must not be soft.


Drain the lentils, discard the bay leaves and pour the remaining olive oil over them while they are still warm. Season with black pepper. Add the marinated feta and sprinkle over with the fresh chopped mint.

And here is the finished product, ready for a romantic evening:
