Thoroughly rinse the green lentils in a sieve under running water. Pour 1 cup water and lentils into a pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower to a simmer and continue cooking until lentils are soft and tender, which should take roughly 30-40 minutes. (In the meantime, prepare other ingredients.)
In your salad bowl, add peeled and sliced zucchini, avocado, and chopped mint leaves.
In a separate bowl/cup, squeeze out the juice of your limes.
Once the lentils are done, allow them to cool for 5-10 minutes, then add them to the salad bowl. Add lime juice, olive oil, and optionally salt to taste.
Mix ingredients well together then pour sunflower seeds on top (mix them in a little bit if you want).
Your dish is ready for serving! Enjoy.
As always, try as best you can to procure and use organic ingredients. Make sure to rinse and clean your produce properly before use.
Use cold-pressed, organic, non-refined and unheated oils only.
Look for olive oil in dark bottles that contain sediment at the bottom, indicating a high quality, natural, and unrefined extra virgin olive oil that was packaged while the oil was fresh.
