Roasted Carrot and Chickpea Salad

Ahh I am so behind on posts! I promise I have been cooking and have a slew of tasty recipes to share over the next few weeks. I am finishing up my 2nd week of neurology in Madison and am loving it. While I have always thought I would go into family medicine, neurology has been a lingering interest since I’ve started medical school. This week is the end of my outpatient part of neurology and next week I will start with inpatient stroke – exactly what I’m interested in. I am really excited to see how it goes!

Anyway, on to the food (since that is why you visit). This is a recipe I made last month with carrots from the CSA. The roasted carrots and walnuts paired with crunchy barley and sharp feta is amazing. I am a bland girl, so I actually ate this without the dressing in the original recipe. If you are more normal than me and like a little more flavor, I recommend you visit Joanne’s website (linked below) and try out the dressing as well.
