- 2 pieces Atoria’s Family Bakery Pita
- 3 or 4 large carrots, cut in 1/2 inch thick slices
- 1½ teaspoons ground cumin
- ½ cup cooked chickpeas
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 1 lime, juiced and zested
- ¼ cup tahini
- 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
- 3 ounces baby arugula or other leafy greens
- 3 tablespoons dry-roasted pumpkin seeds

- In a small bowl, stir together the tahini, lime zest, lime juice (leaving 1 1/2 tsp.), cumin, and 2 tablespoons water; season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Toss together the cucumber, arugula, remaining lime juice, and 2 teaspoons oil.
