Do Ahead or Delegate: Cook the lentils and beets if necessary and dice the beets, crumble the cheese if necessary and refrigerate, juice the lemon, chop the dill, make and refrigerate the dressing, or fully prepare and refrigerate the salad.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Use the juice of a whole lemon to make the dressing and season the salad with freshly ground black pepper.
Tip: If you buy whole beets, keep in mind that the greens that are attached to the vegetable can be prepared just like spinach or Swiss chard or added to smoothies. They are delicious and rich in vitamins and nutrients.
