Ingredients (8)

  • two 14 oz. cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • four cups (or more) diced fresh tomato
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • two cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • two diced avocados
  • lime juice
  • salt and pepper

This is my potluck staple. It’s incredibly delicious and vegan, so almost everyone can eat it. Adapted from Mexican Chickpea Salad from Moosewood Daily Special. These measurements are approximate; I never measure anything and it always turns out great.


  1. 1Mix together chickpeas, tomatoes, onion, garlic, and cilantro until well combined.
  2. 2Gently mix in avocado.
  3. 3Squeeze lime juice over the salad and add salt and pepper. Mix again and taste, and add more lime, salt, and pepper as needed.
