Garbanzo Bean Salad with Avocado

GARBANZO BEAN SALADAs I transition into spring and add many more green salads to my day, I like to have bean salads to add for nutrition and variety. Here is my latest!

1 can garbanzo beans preferably no salt well rinsed

1/4 cup finely diced red onion

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 cup of cilantro leaves chopped (do not like cilantro just sub in parsley!)

1 lime zest half and juice of whole lime.

1/2 bell pepper diced. (I used a yellow pepper in the photo)

1/2 avocado diced

1tsp olive oil

Add all ingredients in a bowl except avocado. Toss well to blend. Add black pepper and a little salt to taste. Add avocado and toss gently. Best if allowed to refrigerate for several hours to let the flavors blend!
