Avocado Chickpea Salad

The weather is getting warmer and it is beginning to be BBQ season time. I love a good fashion BBQ, but I never liked those side dishes like potato salad or cole slaw that is filled with mayo. I wanted to create a recipe that is fresh and flavorful to bring to all the upcoming BBQs this summer.

Next time I make this, I think I’m going to add a little feta cheese too!
