Warm Lentil- Ham Salad With Dijon Cream

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by GaylaJ

This main-dish salad from Cooking Light can be served at room temperature or chilled. It does not call for any salt, I assume because of the ham, but I add a bit of salt anyway.

Just wanted to make a comment, not give a rating. This looks like a beautiful salad, and others have apparently had success. I have tried it two or three times and it never comes out right. Maybe using the canned lentils as others suggested would help.
