    i'm a novice cook and fell in love with a cold salad i tried at a small local grocer months ago...

    it was lentils, (baked?) yam, and goat cheese, with some peppery arugula in there too.  it had a nice kick to it, but was relatively mild in the spice arena.  i'm a novice cook so i'm looking for suggestions anyone might have on how to re-create the cold salad -- or, frankly, any other recipes that might nicely incorporate some or all of these ingredients.  thoughts?

    fyi...for anyone who might be interested...i found a great one!

    cook french lentils over low heat in vegetable broth (enough so lentils are covered; plus sauteed shallots/onions) for 20-25 minutes.

    bake yams (1/2 in. pieces), paprika, cumin, curry powder, olive oil for 25 min at 350 degrees

    toss lentils, yams, fresh arugala, goat cheese crumbles together with some sherry vinaigrette.
