Recipe Directions for LENTIL SALAD

Add lentils, return to boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, until lentils are cooked but still firm, about 15 to 20 minutes. (Don‚??t overcook; lentils will become too mushy for salad.) Drain and rinse well with cold water to stop cooking process.
