  1. In a bowl, whisk together yogurt, mayonnaise, onions, honey, mustard, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  2. In a separate bowl combine cucumber, red onion, and lentils.
  3. Add half of dressing to lentil and vegetable mixture. Continue to add more dressing if desired (Tip: the amount of dressing needed will depend on the size of the cucumber and personal taste).
  4. Wrap salad and set in the fridge to allow flavours to blend for 25 minutes.
  5. Mix salad again, do a taste test to see if more salt and pepper is needed, and then garnish with paprika and enjoy!
