    Lizzie-Babette's Note:

    Nice change of pace salad, perfect year-round, but especially nice for summer pot-lucks and cookouts, as there's no mayo to spoil. You could tweak this recipe quite a lot and add different spices to get a whole new recipe. This could work as both a main meal or as a side dish, depending on your preference.

      This was a great salad, especially with some lemon squeezed over it. The goat cheese and nuts were good on it, but certainly not necessary components. Evelyn's suggestion of using feta instead of goat cheese is a good one - that would match this dish well. I tailored this to our tastes and used less oil, mustard and goat cheese and more parsley and dill. The fresh garlic was perfect for me, I didn't think it was overpowering at all. This would be good for a picnic.

      This was great! I had to make dinner for someone who is sick and needs more lentils in their diet. I'm not really a lentil lover so I instantly thought soup...but it is August. So your lentil salad was perfect. I dropped it off with cold fried chicken, pasta side and fresh melon-great summer meal! The flavors are just right and i love the heavy garlic, fresh parsley and crunch of the pine nuts. Thanks for posting!

      This was so good! I used a grainy stone ground mustard and toasted pine nuts, the flavors were great together. Thanks! I will for sure make this again soon.
