Bring the water to a boil in a small, lidded pot. Add the lentils, cover, reduce heat to maintain a simmer, and cook for 15 minutes. Drain, and set aside to cool.
While the lentils simmer, cook the vegetarian bacon according to package directions. Set aside to cool.
Build the salad, dividing the remaining ingredients between two serving bowls. Start with the lettuce, then spoon in the cooled lentils.
