Guacamole Chickpea Salad With Cilantro-Avocado Dressing

The awesome folks at Pinterest just released their 2016 Pinsights Flavor Report featuring the top 10 trending flavors, ingredients, and food pairings people are currently loving.

I was super inspired by all these ideas, that I decided to create this chickpea salad recipe highlighting one of my personal faves: cilantro!

Fair warning: If you’re one of those people who thinks that cilantro tastes like soap, you’re probably going to want to skip this one.

Serves: 4-6 as a lunch entree or side
