  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • ½ cup chopped parsley

Rinse lentils and place in a large saucepan. Cover with cold water, bring to a boil, lower heat to a simmer and cook lentils until soft (approximately 30 minutes), drain and set aside to cool.
