Simple, nutrient-rich, beautiful! This avocado and greens salad is a fantastic way to get your daily greens AND protein.
Ingredients
  • Juice of 1 large Lemon
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 T. fresh mint, finely diced
  • 10 cups Mixed Greens (I like the ones that contain arugula)
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained & rinsed
  • 1 avocado, diced into cubes
Instructions
  1. Measure out the sea salt & pepper and the olive oil, mince the garlic, chop the mint, and juice the lemon. Combine in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Chop the cucumber into bite-size pieces, rinse and drain the chickpeas, and dice the avocado.
  3. In a large bowl, add your mixed greens, cucumber, chickpeas, and avocado. Toss.
  4. Serve on a large plate or in a large bowl, drizzle the dressing over top. Keeping the dressing separate from the rest of the salad will make your salad mix keep longer in the fridge in an airtight container.
