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.
