Measure and prep all ingredients.
Soften the lentils. Rinse lentils until the water runs clear and drain. In a large bowl, combine the very hot water and rinsed lentils. Let the lentils soak for 20 minutes. Drain the water and set it aside to cool. (See notes.)
While the lentils are soaking, add the shallot, parsley, mint and tomatoes to a large bowl.
Once the lentils have cooled, add the lentils, olive oil, cumin and sea salt into the large bowl with the tomatoes. Toss to coat.
Add the lemon juice a little bit at a time, to taste.
Serve and enjoy!
It is very important to rinse the lentils until the water runs clear.
