Warm lentil vegetable salad with feta, dried currants and dill
3 cups water
1 cup brown lentils, picked over (to remove pebbles)
2 large carrots, peeled and sliced into coins
2 large parsnips, peeled and sliced into coins
1/2 cup minced red onion, divided
1/2 cup dried currants
2 large beets, peeled and diced
1 cup rice wine vinegar
1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
3 tablespoons sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
12 cups cleaned mesclun lettuce
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (about 1/2 cup)
