Lentils with Beets, Walnuts and Goat CheeseI love lentils, particularly the French green Du Puy lentils. These lentils keep their shape and texture much better than most, and the color is more intense. Once you’ve had these it’s hard to go back to any other kind. This salad features sweet roasted beets and goat cheese with the lentils, along with toasted walnuts and a delicious vinaigrette. One of my favourite main-course salads, it can be served with the lentils warm or chilled.Farro SaladFarro is one of the most ancient grains, with its roots in the Mediterranean.
