Lentil Salad to Spice up your Lunch!

I found this awesome recipe for Lentil Salad that my boyfriend and I decided we needed to try!  This recipe is vegan and contains lots of protein to keep you full for a long time.  It is best if you make it ahead and let it sit for a bit to soak up all of the flavours.  The original recipe can be found on PopSugar. 

INGREDIENTS

1 cup French lentils
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon coarse seeded mustard
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse sea salt
1 small red onion, finely diced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup roughly chopped Italian parsley

DIRECTIONS

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil, add the lentils, turn the heat to medium, and cook just until the lentils are cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  2. Drain the lentils, place them in a large mixing bowl, and set them aside.
  3. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the mustards, lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, and a large pinch of salt.
  4. Add the vinaigrette to the lentils along with the onion, tomatoes, and parsley.
  5. Season the salad to taste with salt and more lemon or olive oil if you like.
