 2 medium carrots, grated
 60 g rocket
 100 g feta
 salt and pepper to taste

 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
 1 tsp Cumin

Add all of the ingredients for the vinaigrette into mug and whisk together with a fork.

In a medium sized shallow salad bowl layer the rocket on the bottom, sprinkle the carrot on top, then fold through the chick peas, herbs and feta gently with your fingers.

Pour over the dressing and finish by sprinkling the top with toasted cashew nuts and sesame seeds.
