Marion's lentil salad recipe

I follow this recipe with a few modifications: I like to use cranberries instead of currants (and I use more like 1.5 or 2 cups), and I eliminate the cardamom (just personal taste, but that's how it was prepared for the potluck!). I've also made the salad with all sorts of crunchy vegetables, and other legumes, and it's delicious many ways -- although the original recipe is probably still my favorite.
