Chef Charles Kelsey of Cutty's in Brookline, Massachusetts, tosses chickpeas and carrots with a deliciously unusual combination of smoked paprika, cumin and cilantro.    Make-Ahead Picnic Salads  

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a food processor, combine the lemon juice with the minced garlic and let stand for 15 minutes. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Add the almonds and toast over moderate heat, stirring, until golden, about 5 minutes. Drain the toasted almonds on paper towels and let cool.

Step 2    

Transfer half of the almonds to the food processor. Add the cilantro, cumin, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper and pulse until chopped. Add the olive oil and process to a chunky paste. Season with salt and pepper; transfer to a large bowl. Add the chickpeas and carrots and toss. Garnish with the remaining almonds and serve.
