Chickpea Salad, a healthy and easy salad that combines some of my favorite vegetables that can be made in advance for potlucks and parties too!
Chickpea Salad is actually a recipe that I kind of accidentally put together. I was attempting to "eat down" our refrigerator & pantry and had 2 avocados left that honestly, had seen better days. If I did not consume them that day, they would have to go into the trash. Determined to reduce wastage, I cut up the avocados and picked out the brown bits. It wasn't bad, they were very ripe but still edible. Pulling out what else was left in the refrigerator, I found myself left with mostly vegetables and beans that could still be a great salad. Super quick and easy to make, they can be made in advance and refrigerated till ready for consumption. Perfect for meal preps, potlucks and parties!
