    Excellent!

    Great salad for lunch - I added a small can of tuna to bump up the protein and mix in the greens right before eating. Could also be a great side dish, served warm or cold without the greens.

    Lentil Rice Salad

    Been making this for years now and everytime I bring this anywhere it is always a hugh hit. I make this with another type of homemade dressing (personal taste). Easy to make and you can easily modify it to your taste. Taste better next day so plan ahead and let it sit.
