Meyer Lemon Chickpea Salad

I have been in the mood for some simple food. You can't get much more simple than this salad. A little chopping, a little opening of cans, and salad!

I took this to our Father's Day picnic. It went over so well I only got a picture of my own bowl.

Meyer Lemon Chickpea Salad

1 can Chickpeas
1 avocado
1/2 a cucumber
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1-3 cloves garlic
2-4 tbsp Meyer Lemon Olive Oil
(optional - a little drizzle of Greek Honey)

Rinse and drain the chickpeas. Add to a large serving bowl.

Dice the avocado, cucumber and the cherry tomatoes. Add to the bowl. Depending on how much garlic everyone likes, press 1-3 cloves. We like a lot of garlic, so 3 cloves it was. Start with one and see how it goes. You can always stir in more later.

Toss everything with the Meyer Lemon Olive Oil and chill for at least an hour. Drizzle with the honey just before serving. (if using)
