Chickpea Avocado Salad
I love how versatile this Chickpea Avocado Salad is. I roll it in a wrap for lunch, or pile it on a whole wheat hamburger bun for Jay. Desi will usually just eat it as a side, by itself. If I’m feeling like being rather good, I roll it up inside a lettuce wrap. It’s always so, so delicious!
There’s no added fat or even any sort of dressing in this recipe. What we do have are two earthy, flavorful spices: cayenne and cumin. There’s also some garlic and cilantro, for herby flavor. The avocados do have a good amount of natural, heart-healthy fat, of course, and they add all the creaminess you’ll want, so there’s no need to butter or mayo your wraps and buns. The diced green peppers and red onions add amazing texture, and I sometimes throw in cooked corn kernels for more sweet, crunchy flavor.
Try it, then tell me if you don’t love it as much as we do!
