Rinse lentils with cold water and cook according to the instructions on the packet, you should not need to pre-soak them. I used green lentils and they took about 20 minutes to cook. Once they are cooked, drain and allow to cool.
In a separate pan rinse the quinoa and cook according to the instructions on the packet, it usually takes about 15-20 minutes. Once cooked remove from the heat and fluff with a fork, if the water has been measured correctly then the quinoa should have absorbed it all.
Combine green lentils, quinoa, tomatoes, raisins, onion, cucumber, parsley and mint into a large bowl that you can serve it from.
Mix together the lemon rind, lemon juice and olive oil and pour over salad and toss well.
Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve chilled.
