Wash the lentils and put it in deep saucepan. Take one red onion and prick it with the whole cloves. Put it together with the bay leaf over the lentils. Cover with the water and boil until ready. If necessary, add water during the boiling process.
Finally, withdraw from the hot stove and remove the onion with the whole cloves and the bay leaf (needed only for fragrance at this stage). Drain the lentils and transfer to bowl.
Cut the other red onion and leave aside. Slice also the finocchio and flavor it with 3 tbs olive oil. Fry for couple of minutes in frying pan to have different textures and flavors in the salad.
Prepare the dressing by mixing the other 3 tbs olive oil, the balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt into separate vessel. Whisk them well and then pour over the lentils. Stir well to incorporate all aromas.
