Easy Salad- Chickpea, Feta and Avocado

Chris and I were in Dallas a few weeks ago helping our oldest daughter get settled into her new place before starting a new job. We used to live in Dallas and we miss some of our fun friends.  Our good friends, Lya and Bart had us over for dinner   They both have the gift of hospitality.   Bart grilled some fabulous burgers, their daughter Meredith whipped up a batch of "Summer Beer".  (We used to call these "Skip and go Naked's "in my years after I graduated from Baylor.  I hate beer and these are really yummy! ).  Lya is an amazing cook and served this yummy, easy salad....with chickpeas, feta cheese, avocados, etc. I think this is a great addition to any meal... and a nice change from the green salad or pasta salad.

Chickpea, Avocado and Feta Salad

2 cans chickpeas (or garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
2 avocados, peeled and diced
fresh squeezed lime juice
olive oil drizzle
sea salt to taste

Rinse and drain the chickpeas and place in a large bowl.  Add chopped onion and crumbled feta.  Just before serving, add chopped avocado.  Add the juice of at least one fresh lime and drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle with sea salt.  Toss gently and serve.

*this can be easily doubled or tripled - great for a large group.
