Mandarin Lentil Salad

Submitted by: SHOCKMESANE

Introduction

This is my modification of an old recipe a coworker gave me years ago. I make this all the time. Very tasty and satisfying. I wish I could give credit to the originator of this recipe. All I know is I got it from Kim from Don Pablos years ago. This is my modification of an old recipe a coworker gave me years ago. I make this all the time. Very tasty and satisfying.
