Chickpea SaladThis salad is really, really good.  I made this for a birthday party and it was used as a side salad and a dip with nachos.  The avocado give it a creamy taste while the almonds are nice and crunchy.  The lime and cilantro are the perfect compliment to the chickpeas.

 

Ingredients
2 – 15.5 oz Cans Chick peas – rinsed 
½ White Onion – chopped small
3/4 Cup Slivered Almonds – toasted
1/2 Cup Cilantro – chopped 
2 Avocado – diced
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
Juice from 2 limes
2 tsp Salt
Pepper

 

 Instructions
In a bowl, combine the rinsed chick peas, chopped onion, chopped cilantro, olive oil, salt, pepper and lime juice.  Toss to combine all ingredients.  Toast the almonds in a small pan over low heat.  Add to chick pea mixture.  Dice the avocado and add right before serving.  Mix to blend all ingredients together.  Season with additional salt and pepper.
