A versatile salad - tuck into this healthy salad as a main dish or serve as a side salad.
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1⁄4 tsp cayenne pepper
Preheat the oven to 220°C / 200°C (fan oven) / 425°F / Gas Mark 7. Toss the chickpeas with 1 tbsp oil, spices, salt, and pepper. Place on a prepared baking sheet and roast in the oven until lightly browned and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Shake the pan several times throughout baking. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Combine all the ingredients for the dressing in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. (You can do this either by hand or with an immersion blender.) Add water if the dressing is too thick. Taste and adjust seasonings if need be.
In a large salad bowl, toss the shredded carrots, onion, raisins, and parsley with the dressing. Mix well. Season with a little salt and pepper. Right before serving, top with the chickpeas and enjoy.
