Recipe Notes

If your using canned chickpeas rinse them well under cool water first.  For the cabbage mix I find it easiest to use the pre-chopped bags of mixed cabbage or even broccoli slaw will work.  The carrot can be easily sliced into ribbons using a regular vegetable peeler – just peel the outer edges, discard them and continue to peel the carrot lengthwise into long ribbons.
