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:)

  1. This is my favourite to go salad in case I’m in a real hurry and low on veggies. So simple, so delicious and so healthy and filling, I don’t need anything else. Just water and fruits for later on.

  2. I made this today, it was great! I cut up half of a cucumber and added it to the salad for a little extra veggie kick. Was thinking you could add chicken and really make this a meal!

  3. I just made this salad and it was wonderful!!! I did tweak it a little bit though. I left out the cilantro as I am not a big fan and I used Jalapeno Pepper Feta cheese and that gave it a little well needed zip.

    1. It might brown a little. Squeeze extra citrus on the avocado and cover it tightly with plastic wrap. I eat the leftovers the next day and I think it is still good:)

    I have made this amazing salad so many times, and it is gorgeous. Perfect for lunch, as a side for a BBQ, or as a light dinner. One of my all time favourites:)

  5. 5 stars
    I made this salad last night and I LOVE it! I ended up eating it for dinner instead of a side. It was that good! 🙂 I will absolutely be making this again, soon and often!

  6. 5 stars
    i have been making this salad for years  and it is the greatest!! I use parsley instead of cilantro due to aversion of cilantro!

  7. I made this last night for dinner (rounded it out with a few pieces of leftover chicken breast) and halved the recipe. It was delicious and I’m having the remainder today for my not sad desk lunch. Thanks for the great recipe!

    This has become my most favorite salad ever!!! The flavors are spot on!!! Thank you SO much for sharing! I’ve been adding some sliced cherry tomatoes and a few handfuls of torn mixed greens. Absolutely wonderful! Just made a batch to eat for lunch this week and I already can’t wait! 🙂

  9. Hi, Really enjoyed viewing your creations and recipes, you and I have similarities in the kitchen. My husband and I grow a year-round garden with goats and chickens. Thank you, for all you do and your ideas to enlighten viewers like me.

  10. Hi, thanks for the recipe! I made this last night to have for lunch today, and when I tasted it last night it was delicious! However, today when I ate it for lunch, it had kind of a strange citrusy bitterness, almost like grapefruit peel… any idea what that could be? I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of adding green onion (didn’t have any). The lime was fresh, bought it the same day… any ideas on the bitter flavor? Thanks again for the delicious salad, I will try to make it again and see what happens!

  11. I made this for my family (minus the cilantro bc we didn’t have any) and my five-year-old ate two helpings! So fresh, easy and yummy, thank you.
