Test Kitchen Tip

With just a splash of oil and vinegar, left-over lentil salsa makes a great salad.


Cook lentils in water until tender, about 20 minutes, adding corn during the last minute of cooking; drain well.

Combine lentil mixture, tomatoes, queso fresco, onion, cilantro, zest, and lime juice; season salsa with salt and pepper.

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

Cut lamb meat from the bones; discard bones. Season lamb with Tajin seasoning.

Grill lamb until browned, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare; transfer to a plate and let rest 5 minutes. Cut lamb into ¼-inch-thick slices. Warm tortillas on the grill, 15–30 seconds.

Fill tortillas with lamb; top with lentil salsa.
