  • 1 cup fresh parsley, chopped

  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

  • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, including the olive oil from the jar of sun-dried tomatoes.
  • Enjoy immediately or chill until ready to serve.

Notes

Leftover Cold Lentil Salad will last covered and refrigerated for a few days.
This salad tastes great on a bed of greens such as chopped Romaine lettuce or baby spinach.
If using dried green or brown lentils, my favorite way to cook them is in an Instant Pot:
Rinse 1 cup lentils and combine them with 2 1/4 cups of water. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes. Allow the pressure to release naturally.
Or to cook them on the stove, bring 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil. Add the lentils and allow them to simmer 20-35 minutes until tender.
