From EatingWell: Summer 2004, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008), and The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006). Salmon and lentils are a familiar combo in French bistro cooking; here they combine in a quick and easy salad. For the best presentation, flake the salmon with a fork, then stir gently into the salad to keep it in chunks, not tiny bits.

This is a very tasty and pretty salad, full of flavors and textures. If you are like me, you may want extra dressing because you go overboard with the ingredients. Made for large-sized portions.
