I suggest you make this Yummy Salad, with everything I like in it. The recipe is for about four people, but feel free to double it if you have more friends at your table.
It's sweet and savory at the same time, with lentils (my favorite legume in the world — make sure you get those tiny green ones from France called "du Puy") and Roquefort, a stinky but noble French sheep cheese that has so much depth to its taste (if you think it's too strong, replace it with Stilton or Gorgonzola).
And, again, the recipe is terribly easy. It's summer, so why the fuss?
