    Carrot and Chickpea Salad

    Salad for today! A filling and delicious salad with carrots and chickpeas, and a fragrant dressing, with Moroccan influences. I really enjoy such salads! They fill you without weighing you and, in addition, it is a complete combination of flavors and aromas.

    In this salad you will find various flavors and textures and, I think that’s what makes it so interesting. Her complete title should be Carrot and Chickpea Salad, with Pumpkin Seeds, Sea Buckthorn and Moroccan Dressing 😀 Although this cannot be used as a title, it gives a full picture of what this salad is, right?

    As always, I used chickpeas from the freezer, as I told you before. The most practical way to have ready-made boiled chickpeas is to cook a large batch, strain them and store them in the freezer for hummus, salads, etc. I usually also keep the chickpea water in the freezer and use it in hummus , instead of water. You can see my hummus recipes here and here.
