Roasted Vegetable Lentil Salad

I lìke green/brown lentìls for salads. They’re easy to fìnd, ìnexpensìve, cook quìckly and hold theìr shape as long as they’re not overcooked. If overcooked, they’ll become mushy so keep an eye on them whìle cookìng around the 20-mìnute mark. They should be perfect wìth 20-25 mìnutes cookìng tìme.
