Spring Salad with Chickpeas

Spring Salad with Chickpeas
This is one of my favorite salads to make in the Spring because it’s super simple and packed with healthful nutrients. Serve as is or add your favorite protein such as grilled chicken, steak or salmon for extra protein!

Ingredients

For the salad:
• 1 15 oz. can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained.
• 1 head leaf lettuce, rinsed, drained and chopped.
• ½ yellow bell pepper, seeded, veined and chopped.
• ½ red bell pepper, seeded, veined and chopped.
• ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion.
• 10 grape tomatoes, halved.
• 1 medium cucumber, sliced and quartered.
• 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled.
• 5 radishes, halved and thinly sliced.
• 1 medium avocado, halved and thinly sliced.

For the dressing:
• 2 Tbsp. olive oil.
• 2 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice.
• 2 cloves garlic, grated.
• 1 tsp. dried oregano.

Directions
