We made such a yummy chickpea salad! It features fresh vegetables and excellent protein from the chickpeas! Very satisfying, and filling in a good way, this salad is sure to please. It was a great accompaniment to fish, and if you wanted to stretch it a little further, you can put it on a bed of spinach!

Ingredients

  • 2 cans chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 3 green onions
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 tbsp goat cheese

Start by rinsing 2 cans of chickpeas. Slice 1 cup of grape or cherry tomatoes and toss them in.

Next, slice half a cup of green onions and add them to the bowl. Follow this with one chopped bell pepper. I love avocado, and bonus for those great healthy fats, so the addition of avocado was a must for me!

 

Add salt and pepper to taste, and dress with your favorite vinaigrette. For a creamy treat, sprinkle goat cheese on top! Ready to serve.

 

This recipe evokes memories of summertime on the deck. Warm weather and cool rose. Now that takes me to a very, very, happy place!
