Rinse lentils well with cool water. Add lentils to a medium saucepan and pour in the water and ½ teaspoons salt.
Cook until tender, but not mushy. You want them to hold their shape in the salad. Add more water if you need to during the cooking process.
Once they are tender, drain and rinse with cool water. Set aside while you prep the rest.
Combine all your chopped veggies in a bowl. Then once the lentils are cooled, add them in as well.
Now, combine all ingredients for the dressing. Mix well and taste. If you need to, based on taste preferences, you can add more honey, or if you like it a little more salty, add in a little more salt.
That is it! It's done!
This will hold well in the fridge for up to 4-5 days. I do suggest if you are holding it longer than 5 days, to hold off on the dressing and cheese. It is much better this way!
Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
