    INGREDIENTS
    Salad
    1-1/2 cups water
    1 cup red lentils
    1/2 cup golden raisins
    1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
    1/4 cup sliced green onions
    1/2 cup chopped, toasted pecans
    Dressing
    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Freshly ground pepper, to taste
    PROCEDURE
    Combine water and lentils in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover and cook on high for 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Rinse with cold water and drain well; transfer to a medium-sized salad bowl with raisins, bell pepper and green onions. Whisk all dressing ingredients together in a small bowl; drizzle over lentils and toss to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Stir in pecans just before serving.
