    Buster's friend's Note:

    Adapted from a recipe provided to The Spice House by Kathy Stant from Richmond. "The dressing can be made ahead and stored up to two weeks in the refrigerator. This dressing is also good on Greek Salad." This is a good thing because this recipe makes 3 batches of the dressing (which is mighty tasty). Use optional mint leaves, ripe olives and pepperoncini pepper to garnish.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Whisk first 6 ingredients together to make the dressing for the salad.
    2. 2
      Pick over and wash lentils in several changes of water until water remains clear. Soak lentils in about 2 cups water for 1 - 2 hours, or overnight. (Overnight soaking will reduce cooking time.).
    3. 3
      Heat olive oil in a 2 quart saucepan. Sauté the garlic in the oil until just translucent. Add the coriander seed and heat to release the flavor. Add the lentils and the soaking water and bring just to a boil. Add the bay leaf, cayenne pepper and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 - 20 minutes or until the lentils are tender. Add additional water if necessary to keep the lentils from sticking. Add salt and taste for seasoning.
    4. 4
      Drain any remaining liquid from the lentils, remove the bay leaf, and allow the lentils to come to room temperature.
    5. 5
      In a large bowl combine the lentils and about 3/4 cup of the dressing. Add the vegetables and feta, and toss lightly. Taste for seasoning and add more dressing as desired, or place it on the table for individual use.
    6. 6
      Salad may also be served chilled.
