Green Lentil and Bacon Salad

from Bon Appetit, May 2001

Yes, a “salad” made with ham and bacon!  But lots of parsley and plump little lentils add balance, resulting in a very tasty, substantial dish. This recipe sounds a whole lot more delicious in french: “Salade de Lentilles Vertes au Lardons”, but it is fantastic no matter what you call it.
