Saute onion in 1 tablespoon oil for a minute or two. Add the garlic for a few seconds more and remove from heat. Blanch the carrots in boiling water for a minute or two and drain. In a bowl mix the other tablespoon of oil with the vinegar and mustard until smooth. Add the onion/garlic/parsley/oregano and mix 'til blended. Then add the lentils/tomatoes and carrots. Toss and cool for about half an hour.
