Instructions
  1. Cook the lentils in a pot of water for about 20 minutes, or until soft (make sure they don't become mushy and lose their shape). When done, strain the lentils under cold water.
  2. While the lentils are cooking, prepare the dressing. In a food processor blend together the figs, mint, olive oil, lemon juice, honey, and sea salt.
  3. Prepare the vegetables- rinse and chop.
  4. Mix everything together in a large bowl.
  5. Top with fresh figs, almonds, mint leaves, and zatar.
