Make a few extra lentils when you’re making dinner and set some aside to turn into this super easy lunch salad the next days. A lot of flavor in this dish will come down to which lentils you choose and how you cook them…lentils leftover from this dish would work very nicely, so increase the lentils and stock by about 30%.

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
