Ingredient tip: Lentils are low in fat and high in protein and fiber. The best, most delicate lentils are the lovely peppery French green lentils used here; because they take a bit longer to cook than other lentils (about 30 minutes) but hold their shape well, cook them in advance and chill, adding salt at the end of cooking. Use ¾ cup dried lentils to yield 1½ cups cooked.
- Whisk vinegar, 4 tablespoons olive oil, mustard, honey, and salt and pepper to taste.
- Sauté walnuts in 1 teaspoon olive oil, mar-joram, coriander, salt, and pepper, stirring continuously, until brown, about 5 minutes.
- Toss walnuts, lentils, bell pepper, scallions or chives, and salad greens in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing, toss, and serve.
