Rinse lentils and combine with carrots, turnips, celery, onion, garlic, bay leaf and 1/3-C. olive oil in a large saucepan. Sauté for several minutes over medium heat, then add water and simmer over low heat for about 1 hour or until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat and stir in tarragon vinegar. In a small bowl, combine Dijon mustard and 3 Tbs. olive oil and whisk together. Spread mustard mixture on top of each salmon fillet. Spray a cooking rack with non-stick cooking spray and place fillets on rack. Cook fillets for 20 minutes at 425 degrees or until salmon is fully cooked. Stir parsley into lentil mixture. Place a serving of lentils on each plate and top with a serving of the salmon.
