As fall blows in, heartier dinners are comforting. Salads can become hybrids of greens and vegetables mixed up with filling grains.

Instructions

  1. Place lentils in small saucepan; cover with water by 2 inches. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes or just until tender. Drain well; cool.

  2. Combine broth and bulgur in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until broth is absorbed. Cool; fluff with a fork.

  3. Meanwhile, cook chicken. Season both sides of chicken fillets with herbs, salt, and pepper.

  4. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes. Turn chicken, cover skillet, and cook about 4 minutes longer or until golden brown and no longer pink in center. Keep warm.

  5. Whisk together lemon juice, mustard, lemon peel, and 1 tablespoon oil in a large serving bowl. Stir in tomatoes, green onions, and parsley. Add lentils, bulgur, and curly endive; toss mixture until well combined.

  6. Serve salad topped with chicken, garnished with feta cheese.
