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.

Ingredients

  • Chickpeas– rinsed and drained
  • Avocados– use ripe avocados!
  • Cilantro– if you don’t care for cilantro, you can use basil or parsley.
  • Green onion– red onion would also work!
  • Feta cheese– it adds a creamy and salty kick to the salad.
  • Lime juice– squeeze fresh lime juice over the salad for flavor and to prevent the avocado from browning. Lemon juice would also be good!

How to Make Chickpea Avocado Salad

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. Probably the easiest and tastiest salad I’ve ever made.

  • In a medium bowl, combine chickpeas, avocado, cilantro, green onion, feta cheese, and lime juice. Stir until mixed well. Season with salt and pepper. Serve.
  • If you need the salad to be vegan, you can leave out the feta cheese, it will still be tasty!
