Carrot & Chickpea Salad.....by Jessica
I thought today was going to be spent scrubbing my bathrooms with bleach and mopping the floors. Instead I got to spend the day chatting with friends, cooking and eating! A good way to spend a day off from work...and all that other stuff can always be done another day, right?
For lunch I made Carrot and Chickpea Salad for Jamie and I. We really enjoyed the dish and the honey, lemon juice and sesame oil dressing was fantastic. It's a pretty easy and quick recipe that I think would be an excellent side dish with grilled chicken or fish. I didn't have any peanuts in the house, so I used almonds and I think I'm going to send a letter to Donna Hay and let her know that almonds are the better choice...she should probably revise the recipe.
