Remember my Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad Sandwich? If you’ve tried it, you know what I am talking about. It is pretty much the best sandwich ever. I eat it all of the time. If you haven’t tried it, you are missing out. Add it to your must make list right now.

The other day, I was going to make my favorite sandwich for lunch, but I was in a rush, so I decided to throw together a quick salad using the same ingredients. My favorite sandwich turned into my new favorite salad. This Chickpea, Avocado, and Feta Salad is good stuff.

You could probably make this salad with your eyes closed. Please don’t try it though since you have to use a knife to chop up the avocado. I don’t want any of you to end up with a finger in your salad or a trip to the ER. It is super duper easy! Probably the easiest and tastiest salad I’ve ever made.

All you have to do is combine chickpeas, avocado, cilantro, green onion, feta cheese, and a little lime juice. That is it. Five minutes is all you need to make this healthy salad! It is perfect for a quick lunch, dinner, or healthy snack! And it’s a good recipe to serve at parties because it is so easy…and everyone will want the recipe!

If you’ve made my favorite sandwich then you know I don’t use feta, but I decided to add it to the salad for color and a kick of flavor. If you need the recipe to be vegan, you can leave it out, but I loved it! I might have to add a little to my sandwich next time:)

I am making this Chickpea, Avocado, and Feta Salad for my good friend Aggie’s virtual baby shower! We are soooo thrilled for Aggie and her family. I know Aggie loves my Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad Sandwich, so I hope she will enjoy my Chickpea, Avocado, and Feta Salad too! It’s a great recipe to have on hand for those first few months when you are not in the mood to cook. Aggie is going to be too busy snuggling a cute little baby:)
