Cumin Carrot & Chickpea Salad

Cumin Carrot & Chickpea Salad

Cumin roasted carrots and chickpeas come together as a delicious vegetarian salad that is great on its own or on a sandwich.  You can make the dressing ahead of time and store in a jar until you’re ready to add the chickpeas.  Leave out the feta if you’d like this salad to be vegan.
