How can you create a salad that packs a protein punch without adding meat?  One of the best ways is to include chickpeas! Chickpea Salad is such a delicious and nutritious way to enjoy fresh summer veggies and is perfect to make ahead and enjoy for lunch!

I love fresh summery salads filled with a huge variety of produce and this recipe contains so many wonderful, fresh ingredients! Refreshing cucumbers, juicy diced tomatoes, crisp bell peppers and smooth creamy avocados are the perfect complement to chickpeas! Not only is the combination of colors and textures beautiful, it is loaded with flavor for a totally irresistible meal ready in just minutes.

When choosing an avocado, it should be ripe enough to be a little bit soft you squeeze it, but not too soft.  If the skin looks dry or overly wrinkled, it will likely be too ripe. Cut the avocado lengthwise and twist to separate the halves. The flesh should have a light green, even color (brown spots mean it’s a bit overripe).  Once the seed is removed, I cut the flesh into squares right in the skin and then use a spoon to easily scoop them out into a bowl.
