Chickpea, Cashew & Carrot Salad


This delicious Chickpea, Cashew & Carrot Salad is a fast and simple salad to make. I love to toast the cashew nuts in a little sesame oil however, you could also use olive oil. This salad tastes delicious with my Cashew Teriyaki Dressing drizzled over the top. 





  • 1 pepper, chopped

  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped

  • 2 carrots, grated

  • 1/4 cup of coriander, chopped

  • 1/2 cup of cashew nuts

  • 2 tins of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

  • Olive or sesame oil

  • Cup of Cashew Teriyaki Dressing


  1. Add the oil and cashew nuts to a small pan and toast gently until the cashews are lightly browned.

  2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.

  3. Drizzle over the Cashew Teriyaki Dressing

  4. Serve and enjoy.
