This is a delicious dish you can adjust or add to, as desired. I don't remember where I originally got it, but it's become a standby for both summer barbecues and for winter meals when fresh salad ingredients are hard to find.
Lentils are such a good-for-you food, and served over brown rice, make a complete meal. This recipe is a combination of several, and has a wonderful sweet and spicy flavor. Add water if they become too thick. Leftovers can be frozen.
