10 minute avocado chickpea salad

HG-85.jpg

One of the reasons why I love this salad so much is because aside from being nourishing and super tasty, it's SO FREAKIN' easy to put together - It'll take you 15 to put together (at the most!) and the results are truly rewarding.

It's perfect on its own, as a side dish or served over crackers - You can make it without the avocado up to 24 hours in advance and fold in the avocado just before serving.

Sometimes for a crunch, I like to add toasted sunflower seeds. Go ahead and try it out yourself!

You won't be disappointed.
