Lentil Spinach Salad

My family’s been making different variations of this salad for years, both at home and on camping trips. We make it at least once a week. It’s easy to throw together and packed with protein and fiber. I almost always use the steamed lentils from Trader Joe’s, but dried lentils cook up surprisingly quickly. Just be sure to season them with plenty of salt and pepper.
