I got this recipe in a "swap" with one of my sisters. People usually aren't too familiar with lentils, so they'll at first try only a little. Before long, though, they'll ask to have the bowl passed back down so they can take a "real" helping!
We live on a small livestock farm—raising goats, rabbits and chickens—and I've found this salad's an ideal dish to take out to the field. My husband and I have four children, ranging in age from 6 years to 6 months.
The bold colors of this unique salad draw you in to give it a try. The unusual combination of ingredients made me a bit nervous before trying it for the first time, but I was very pleased with the delicious results!
Vanilla yogurt gives this simple and traditional salad a special twist. It's wonderful with grilled chicken, and it makes a great lunch side for your favorite sandwich. Elizabeth Borgemenke - Mason, OH
I crated my salad recipe while trying to think of a protein-filled, nutritious and light dish for a summer potluck. It was super easy and visually quite colorful. Best of all, it was a success...everyone, especially the vegetarians and vegans loved it!—Maiah Albi, Carlsbad, California
