Chickpeas, carrot and watercress salad

I love salads, but they are not always going great with the baby. She still has very few teeth and so cannot chew raw veggies very well, she also cannot deal with salad leaves as there is nothing to bite. She managed to eat this one just fine and there is some evidence caught on camera. Here I used grated carrot, chopped watercress and other greens, plus chickpeas that she loves. This makes a big bowl of salad. 

If you are cooking dry chickpeas, just soak them overnight and pressure cook for about 30 minutes.
