  1. Prepare your quinoa by following the directions on your package. You could even use leftover quinoa to make this salad. I used 3 cups of cooked quinoa.
  2. In a pot, add 1 cup of lentils, cover with water about 2 inches and bring to boil. Allow to simmer for 7-15 minutes, depending how you like your lentils.
  3. Lentils in pan
  4. To make your dressing to toss in later, mix lemon juice and olive oil.
