Vegetarian Salad

Wanting to use this huge avocado that I bought today I decided to use it in a salad. Because of the ingredients I've named this Avocado Chickpea Tomato Salad.

Like many salads that I make I will check and see what I have on hand, what will go together well, and then start building the salad. This is the thing I like about salads is you can add a bit of this and a bit of that, get creative, and most times if you like everything that you've put into the salad, it will taste great.

This vegetarian salad can be served as a side salad or as a meal all on its own.


Prep time: 15 min
Ready in: 15 min
Yields: 4 or more

Ingredients

  • 1 very large avocado or 2-3 small to medium ones
  • 1 TBS of lemon juice
  • Garlic powder (amount depending on your taste)
  • 1 can of drained and rinsed chickpeas (AKA Garbanzo Beans)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped sweet onion
  • 1 TBS. dried cilantro or fresh if you have it
  • 2 medium tomatoes chopped
  • Sea salt to taste
  • lemon pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.
  2. Remove the peel and slice and cut the slices into small pieces.
  3. Place the avocado into a medium size bowl.
  4. Add garlic powder.
  5. Add lemon juice and gently toss making sure to coat all of the avocado. This will keep it from turning brown.
  6. Next add the chickpeas, onion, and the cilantro.
  7. Now it is time to add the tomatoes, sea salt, and lemon pepper.
  8. Toss gently and serve. ENJOY!

      What a beautiful photo of a delicious-looking salad. I like your, bit of this and bit of that method, too. I have let too many avocados spoil. Now I know what else I can do with them. Thanks.

      We have these huge softball-shaped avocados in Hawaii that would be perfect in this salad. I like the added touch of sea salt.

      All this salad needs are a few tortilla chips. Yummy! Thank you for another great addition to my recipe file.

      Since avocados are now in season here, I think I will try to this one day. But I'm sure to remove the chickpeas as I don't eat them. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

      Oh, this looks so perfect for a hot summer day! Salads are great and sometimes we like guacamole burgers even. I bet this would be even better on a burger.

      Great idea! I don't use avocado very often because of a lack of recipes. Pinned this to my Favorite Recipes board for future use. The flavors sound so good. I love garlic.
