   brown and fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Make dressing:
   Process garlic, sesame seeds, salt and pepper in a
   blender bowl or food processor.  Blend in lemon juice
   and oil. Cook carrots in a large pot of boiling salted
   water until crisp tender, about 4 minutes; drain well.
   Toss carrots with chick peas and dressing in a large
   bowl. Let cool to room temperature.  Add cucumber,
   parsley and olives. Toss to coat with dressing.  Serve
   at room temperature. 152 calories per serving. From:
