This Apple-Chickpea Kale Salad by Caryn Carruthers is a delight of contrasting textures, temperatures and flavors. Yes, this is a salad, but it isn’t your choke-down-your-raw-veggies kind of salad. It is the kind of salad that has warm and cold veggies, crunchy apples, meaty chickpeas, the slight tingle of a thinly sliced red onion, and more to keep you interested in what your next bite combination will be. A better name is required for a salad like this — come to think of it, it’s a smorgasbowl!

There is nothing like smooth, creamy hummus. It was one of my favorite foods when I was a kid, but chickpeas became too hard for me to digest—so I can no longer enjoy it. Luckily, I’ve found ways to create dips inspired by the other ingredients that make hummus so delicious. In this recipe, I roast colorful carrots with classic Indian spices and then blend them with tahini, lemon juice, and garlic. This Indian Rainbow Carrot Dip by Shivangi Rao a great dip to pair with gluten-free crackers, grain-free tortillas, or fresh, crunchy veggies.
