My Chickpea Salad
This salad is so incredibility easy to make!! No cooking involved and honestly takes about 10 minutes. Chickpeas are a great source of protein especially for my vegan and vegetarians, one-half cup of cooked chickpeas has barely any fat, yet provides 7 grams of protein and 22 grams of energy-providing complex carbohydrates. Chickpeas are a insoluble fiber, which is great for digestive health. Because of this I have given you this amazing salad recipe all to get in and amongst. Pop it on the table next time at dinner, I promise everyone will love you for it!
YOU WILL NEED:
- One can of chickpeas
- Half a cucumber
- Half of a red onion
- One tomato
- Half of a avocado
- Two tbs of olive oil
- Lemon juice
- Pinch of pink salt
Finely chop your cucumber, red onion and tomato. Drain and rinse chickpeas then place all ingredients into a mixing bowl including your avocado.
Combined well- I like to use my hands hah.
Now dress with your olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Stir through and tastes you go- you can change the rations depending on your pallet.
There you have it, its that simply! Perfect as a side or as a light but satisfying meal.
