Incorporating lentils is an easy way to add bulk to any salad. Here, they soak up a creamy dressing and complement the fresh crunch of ribboned zucchini. Note that this recipe calls for cooked lentils, so be sure to have those ready to go.

What could I replace the almond meal with? I am allergic to almonds.
