Ingredients

  • 2 15 ounce cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans) (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 medium green bell pepper (seeds and stem removed, chopped)
  • 1 ½ cups fresh flat-leaf parsley (chopped, about 1 bunch)
  • ½ cup red onion (minced)
  • ½ cup celery (chopped)
  • 1 avocado (peeled, pit removed, chopped)
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes (halved)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil (extra virgin )
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice (from 1 to 1½ lemons)
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground )

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients except the lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Gently toss to mix.
  • Add lemon juice to a small bowl. Pour in a very thin, steady stream of olive oil while whisking the entire time to emulsify the dressing. Pour over salad and gently toss to distribute the dressing.
  • Season to taste with the kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. 
  • Serve immediately or chill up to 4 days.

Notes

If not planning on serving right away, you might want to wait to add the avocado as it will brown with time.
