Firm, earthy-tasting French green lentils hold their own in this salad.
Bring large pot of water to a boil. Add lentils. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain. Transfer to bowl, and stir in 1 Tbs. vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cool, stirring occasionally.
Pour 1 1/4 cups boiling water over couscous in large bowl. Stir in salt, cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with fork, and stir in 2 tsp. oil. Cool.
Whisk together garlic paste, remaining 3 Tbs. oil, remaining 2 Tbs. vinegar and mint in small bowl. Stir dressing and lentils into couscous.
Just before serving, add arugula, tomatoes and feta.
