Cook the washed green lentils in salted boiling water; drain and keep aside. (Takes approximately 15-20 minutes to cook)
To the drained lentils, add the spinach leaves and mix through. The residual heat slightly wilts the spinach which is all the cooking that it needs.
To a salad bowl, add the lentils with spinach and all the remaining chopped veggies and herbs.
To make the dressing, add all the ingredients to a bowl and whisk well.
Pour this over the salad just before serving; toss well to combine.
