- STEP 1
Rinse lentils well and drain. Place in a pot and cover with 3 cups of water, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer. Check on the lentils after 15 minutes and if they are al dente, they are ready. You do not want overcooked, mushy lentils.
- STEP 2
While the lentils are simmering, make the vinaigrette by placing all ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake to combine.
- STEP 3
When the lentils are cooked, remove from heat, drain and place under cold running water to stop them from continuing to cook.
- STEP 4
Place lentils in a large serving bowl. Add onion, spinach, capers, pine nuts and cranberries and toss with dressing. Serve and enjoy!
