In saucepan, bring salted water to boil; stir in lentils. Cover and reduce heat to low; simmer for about 25 minutes or until tender. Drain and transfer to bowl.

Meanwhile, in separate saucepan, bring 1 cup (250 mL) water to boil; stir in rice. Cover and reduce heat to low; simmer for about 20 minutes or until rice is tender and no liquid remains. Add to lentils. Add red pepper, feta cheese and pine nuts.

In small bowl, whisk together parsley, oil, vinegar, garlic, mint, coriander, salt and pepper; pour over rice mixture and toss gently. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days; serve at room temperature.)
