Easy Avocado Chickpea Salad

(serves 2-3)


     1 x 14 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

     1 medium ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and mashed

     1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

     Juice of 1 medium lemon juice

     Handful of fresh cilantro, chopped

     8-10 oz of canned tuna (or chicken) in water, drained

     Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste


In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed avocado with the lemon juice. Stir in the protein, cherry tomatoes, and tuna if using. Toss in the cilantro. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and black pepper. Eat and enjoy!


Make-Ahead Tip: You can prep the tuna / chicken, tomatoes, chickpeas, and cilantro in advance. Just add the avocado and lemon juice when you're ready to eat. This will keep 2-3 days in the fridge.
