  • 1 Avocado diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Lemon Juice about 1 lemon
  • 1 15-ounce can Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup Red onion diced
  • 2 cups Grape Tomatoes halved
  • 2 cups Cucumbers diced (can be peeled or unpeeled as preferred)
  • ½ cup fresh Cilantro or Italian Parsley chopped
  • ¾ cup Yellow or Red Bell Pepper diced
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Place diced avocado in a large bowl and squeeze lemon juice over the top of it. Gently stir together. NOTE: this adds flavor and helps keep it from turning brown (oxidizing).
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients and toss to combine.
  • Chill for 1-2 hours before serving or eat right away. Enjoy!
