For a fresh take on a Mediterranean salad, we combined lentils, quinoa, fresh herbs, raisins, and cucumber, with a creamy lemon vinaigrette. The key to a wildly tasty and satisfying salad is a balance of textures and flavors—crunchy, smooth, sweet, and tangy—and it's all here, complemented by a bright, fresh homemade dressing you can make in minutes. There is plenty of protein, too, with the quinoa, lentils, cheese, and seeds all contributing. Wonderful served warm or at room temperature, this salad's flavors meld and become even more vibrant when prepared ahead of time. At home or on a picnic, those around you will be enviously asking for the recipe.
