  2. Prepare the dill sauce by combining all the ingredients together and stirring well – add a little water to thin out if necessary. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the salad by adding all the ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl and add the oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss to coat all the ingredients.
  4. Now, assemble the platter. On a medium-sized platter, begin by spreading the hummus onto the platter, making a dent in the middle for the salad. Add the salad to the middle of the platter, sprinkle with the roasted chickpeas and then drizzle with the lemon and dill dressing.
