Quick and simple chickpea salad with and creamy avocado sauce. The avocado dressing is delicate but quite acidic thanks to the addition of orange (or lemon) juice and creates a perfect combination with the freshness of rocket salad and carrots. Pumpkin seeds add extra crunchiness while raisins give a sweet note. An easy and delicious side dish.
