This colorful plate comes together lightning fast, thanks to a couple of smart convenience products. Precooked lentils, which you’ll find in the produce section, are a delicious timesaver that are made even better with a mustard-flecked vinaigrette. And smoked trout is a no-cook protein option that gives the salad some heft. A hint of tahini in the garlicky yogurt base enriches the mixture and slightly softens the yogurt’s tang. While this salad is great for a quick dinner, it’s also a smart choice for make-ahead lunches. You can pack up individual servings for easy take-to-work meals.
