- Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine tomatoes, oil, onion, salt, and pepper until well-mixed; let stand while lentils cook, tossing occasionally.
- Drain lentils; set aside to cool.
- Add cooled lentils, cucumber, parsley, and lemon juice to tomato mixture; toss to mix and coat. Serve or cover and refrigerate up to 1 day.
