In the summer, I crave ice cream. When I'm not craving ice cream, I love a good glass of sauvignon blanc. But if ice cream and white wine aren't available, there's not much better than fresh food that is easy to throw together. This quick salad is a great side dish, but also works well for meal for two.
You will need:
- 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 2 small, vine ripened tomatoes, chopped
- 1 avocado, chopped
- 4 sliced of bacon, crisped and chopped
- 2 teaspoons champagne vinaigrette
- 4 teaspoons olive oil
Combine the chickpeas, tomatoes, avocado, and bacon in a medium bowl. Whisk together the oil and vinegar. Pour the dressing over the ingredients and toss gently. You can eat this right away or put it in the fridge for a few hours. The avocado will stay green for a bit thanks to the acid in both the tomatoes and the vinegar.
It is so fresh and tasty! (and so simple!)
