These kinds of salads rule my lunch box these days. They are a snap to put together in the mornings and the flavors are well blended by lunch time. The original recipe, from Vegetarian Times, was for Tacos stuffed with this salad, but I just omit the tacos.
Here's how I put it together:
1 can of chickpeas - drained, rinsed and microwaved for 2 mins
1 cup of salsa per your choice
1 avocado - sliced
1 tsp lemon juice
Salt & pepper to taste
Other seasonings as desired like Mrs. Dash, hot sauce etc.
Toss all these together. Carry the lettuce separately. Just before eating, toss the lettuce with the salad.
This Chickpea Salad goes to the Show Me Your Lunchbox Event at Divya's Dil Se.
