Chilled Lentil Salad with Spicy Vinaigrette

“This is a great salad to serve to guests; it can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge until serving time. Watch the lentils very carefuly while cooking them, you don't want them to overcook and lose their texture and shape. Chill time (1-2 hours) is not included in prep and cook time.”
