celery and parsley to the cooked lentils. Mix gently.

Whisk the remaining ingredients together in a small bowl; add to the lentil
mixture. Mix gently but thoroughly. If desired, chill before serving.

Loomis writes: "This recipe is another treasure from Li Ochs of Eureka Farm
in eastern Washington. It's a big, hearty salad, full of fresh herbs. And
with its yogurt-based dressing it manages to be light and sprightly, too."
