Place lentils in a pan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until lentils are tender, about 25 minutes. (Cooking times will vary depending upon the variety of lentil; refer to package directions.) Drain lentils and keep warm.
While lentils are cooking, heat chicken stock in a small saucepan and add carrots and parsnips and simmer for 5 minutes. Add scallions to vegetables and cook another 3 to 5 minutes or until parsnips are tender. Add vegetables to lentils and season with salt, pepper and parsley. Add 1/4 cup Simply Dressed® Balsamic Dressing to lentil mixture.
In another bowl, toss salad greens with the remaining ¼ cup dressing and arrange greens on plates. Place a generous spoonful of lentils on top of greens and serve. Drizzle with additional dressing if desired.
