Here's a delicious way to get fiber-rich lentils into your diet. "This salad includes something I discovered years ago: a touch of ground cloves," notes Lillian Julow of Gainesville, Florida. "It does amazing things for lentils!"
“My husband enjoyed this salad at a restaurant, so I went home and duplicated it,” recalls Joan Rockvam from Alexandria, Minnesota. “He tried it and said, ‘It’s better than theirs!’ So it’s been a keeper.”
MY Mother often fixed this salad when I was a child. I grew up on a farm and most of our food came right from the garden. We especially liked this in the spring, when early leaf lettuce appeared. After a long winter of cooked vegetables, this was a real treat.
