          I diligently halved this recipe to make 4 side dish servings, and they were LARGE servings Not as tasty as I had hoped--only change I made was to replace the scallion with a bit of sweet onion and add a sprinkle of dried oregano leaves to the vinaigrette. Next time I would add more sweet onion and more grapes. Perhaps mine was a bit bland because I didn't have the recommended type of lentils. When I serve the second half of the salad tomorrow, I will see if just aging it longer in the fridge changes its flavor. Will definitely make this again. YUMMY AND HEALTHY TOO.
