Meatless Monday: Lentil Mango Salad

Laima originally shared this simple clean delicious lentil salad over at Women's Endurance Gear. It was so good I decided to share it here as well. This is a great treat anytime of the year, as the mango give a tropical lift -- availability of mangos is the only concern.
