Curried French Lentil and Quinoa Salad

This salad is my attempt to imitate a salad I ate out the other day. I think it turned out fabulous! Of course use as many organic ingredients as you can!It is a great salad to keep in the fridge for a quick lunch or snack. Ingredients: 1 cup of uncooked french lentils (cook according to instructions), 1 cup of uncooked quinoa ( cooked according to instructions), 3 carrots grated, 2 cups of organic sweet corn, 1 cup of organic extra virgin olive oil, 1 fresh lime squeezed for juice, 1 bunch of organic green onions chopped, 1 cup of cashews chopped, salt to taste, 2 tablespoons of organic curry powder, 1 tsp of fresh grated ginger, 1/4 cup of crushed coriander.French Lentil Organic
