Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, garlic powder, dill, salt, and minced garlic and whisk together.

In a medium bowl add chickpeas, minced onion, chopped bell pepper, 1/2 an English cucumber chopped and cilantro.

Pour in the dressing and mix thoroughly. The longer you allow it to marinate the more intense the flavor will be!

Next, using a spiralizer or tool of choice, curl one english cucumber and 2-3 large carrots [the biggest, thickest carrots you can find] into raw spiral noodles.

Whisk together 2 tablespoons of honey with 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar and pour over the salad.

Top with extra chopped cilantro and a hearty sprinkle of sesame and chia seeds. Enjoy!
