  • 1 can lentils, rinsed well and drained
  • 3 tbsp. chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 head red leaf lettuce
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 peaches, skin removed and sliced thin
  • 1 small container feta cheese, crumbled
  • 3/4 cup toasted pistachios, chopped coarsely
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • sufficient amount of fig balsamic vinegar

In a bowl combine the lentils, parsley, mustard, oil, vinegar. Mix well and refrigerate, covered.
