Cilantro Lime Shrimp, Avocado, Chickpea Salad

I love salads during the Summer more than any other time of the year. They are so wonderful to have for a “clean lunch” by themselves or as a side dish with dinner.

I had a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer that I was planning on marinating and grilling again but I was in the mood for something different.  And since I’m on a cilantro kick lately, (I really can’t get enough! Love it!), I made this little Cilantro Shrimp, Avocado, Chickpea Salad concoction and I loved it so much I had it for dinner with my favorite Turkey Burgers.

1 lb of cooked shrimp, cut in half

1 cup of chickpeas

1 avocado, diced

1/2 cup of cilantro, chopped

1 TBSP of lime juice

1/8 tsp pepper

    I have been on a cilantro kick lately too. I did not start liking it until recently and now want to use it in lots of ways especially when it is accompanied with lime. This recipe sounds like perfection! Thanks for sharing.
