A startling lack of legumes in your list! Are they hard to come by or just not your cup of tea? In addition to lentils, I suggest chick peas (my personal favorite legume to add to a salad), black beans, cannellini beans, edamame, and the list goes on. I recently made a salad with Romaine lettuce, cucumbers, and then lentil rice pilaf. Crunchy and tasty! (Admittedly cheating by using the Near East brand box of lentil rice pilaf - I wouldn't take the time to create that combo myself without a box.)

I don't really like beans or peas (on their own), but I did have snow peas and snap peas on my list, so that ought to count for something! :)
