  2. Make vinaigrette by combining oil, vinegar, mustard, salt pepper, mustard seeds, and garlic powder. Taste and adjust seasonings-add red pepper flakes or parsley to taste.
  3. Mix diced carrots, beet, celery, raisins and vinaigrette into lentils. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  4. Garnish with green onions, optional fresh parsley, basil, mint, thyme or cilantro.
