  1. Place cooked lentils in a large bowl.
  2. Peel celeriac (saving the leafy top) using a paring knife and cut into ⅛ inch slices, then cut those slices into long thin match sticks (if using celery, just slice thinly). Place in the bowl with the lentils.
  3. Cut the apple the same way, into long match sticks, leaving the peel on. Place in the bowl.
  4. Finely dice the onion, place in the bowl.
  5. Slice the celeriac top or celery stock, add to bowl.
  6. Add half of the chopped Italian parsley, saving the rest for garnish.
  7. Mix the all dressing ingredients in a small bowl incorporating the honey, remembering to toast the cumin seed until fragrant. Fold the dressing i with the lentil mixture. Let sit 15 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to meld.Adjust salt and pepper if necessary.
  8. To serve, place in a bowl or platter, scatter with fresh Italian parsley. Sometimes I’ll add walnuts to this for extra heartiness.
