  • Spicy Citrus Vinaigrette:
  • Juice of 1 small orange
  • Juice of 1 lime

  2. Mix together with the lentils in a large bowl (reserve some of the green onion for garnish).
  3. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a bowl or shake in a small container with a lid. If you want a smoother dressing you could blend it together instead.
