Good Beit Cafe Lentil (or Quinoa) Salad
Cooked lentils (brown) or quinoa
Veggies chopped up really small: red onions, red peppers, carrots, hot pepper, radish etc. (not tomatoes or cucumbers or anything too mushy)
Chopped herbs: parsley, cilantro and mint
Chopped nuts and/or seeds (almonds, walnuts, sesame, pine nuts, flax etc.)
1. Cook lentils or quinoa according to package instructions. Let it cool down.
2. Mix together the lentils or quinoa, veggies, herbs, nuts/seeds, cranberries, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper (I like the proportion to be about 1:1 lentils and everything else)
3. Taste and adjust seasoning, and serve with tehina or labane
