fresh lemon lentil salad

i'm obsessed with the pre-steamed lentils from Trader Joe's. they're pre-cooked, packaged in a vacuum sealed package and perfectly salted. of course, if you don't have access to pre-cooked lentils, just boil some fresh!

this salad is the perfect easy and healthy main dish or side-dish for any Spring or Summer meal.
