Prep Time 15 mins
Total Time 15 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 1 540mL/19oz can no salt-added chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 2 ripe avocados diced
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onion
  • 1/3 cup parsley or cilantro finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Juice of one lemon (about 4 tbsp lemon juice)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix until combined.
  • Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to three days.*

Notes

  • *If you plan to make this salad in advance (i.e. keeping it in the fridge for longer than a day), I recommend adding the avocado in right before serving to keep it fresh and help prevent browning.
  • For best results, use an avocado that's ripe but still slightly firm to prevent it from being too brown and mushy when mixed into the salad. You know the avocado is ripe if it yields to firm gentle pressure. It should feel lightly soft but not “mushy” to the touch.
