Preheat oven to 400F. Drain the chickpeas and dry them really well. Season with cumin, salt and a olive oil. Roast the chickpeas in the oven for 20-25 minutes until they are golden crispy. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Prepare the dressing in a mixing bowl by whisking all ingredients together.

In a large salad bowl, combine quinoa and all salad ingredients, add the roasted cooled chickpeas and pour the dressing over and toss to combine.

Decorate with the strawberries.
