Ingredients for Salad:

  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 cups diced cucumber (about 1 large)
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro

Directions:

1. Place avocado in a large mixing bowl. Squeeze lemon juice over and gently stir to coat. (This helps the avocado stay green.)

2. Add remaining ingredients for salad, including dressing ingredients. Gently toss to combine.

3. Refrigerate at least one hour before serving.

4. Serve cold.

    It looks sooo good!

    I would skip the coriander, because I don’t like it and probably the onion too since I would take this to the office. 🙂
