Black Chickpeas & Cheese Salad

My family members are great fan of cheese especially in salads. If i want to feed them easily with salads, i dont forget to some cheese cubes, so that they can enjoy both their bowl of salad along with cheese. When i picked Kid's delight Summer salads as theme for this week's blogging marathon i was very much sure about making a salad with cheese. Since i had some cooked black chickpeas in my fridge i couldnt stop myself to adding them while making this easy breezy summer salad for our dinner. Yes its summer here,obviously i dont think more than preparing some easy and healthy salads for our dinner just to avoid cooking after some hectic busy schedules.One among those summer salads is this cheese loaded chickpeas salad with couple of vegetables in it.

We love avocados in our salad as well. Avocado is extremely healthy. Our farmer"s market is loaded with avocado, needless to say whenever i go to farmer's market i dont forget to grab them. Though kids love to enjoy avocadoes with mayonnaise i love to add them in my bowl of salads? Hence i couldnt stop myself adding some avocado chunks and sweet cornkernels. Both works awesome for making this simple yet a nutritious salad. A simple salad dressing is enough to enjoy this healthy salad.

Cheese Vegetable & Chickpeas Salad

Black chickpeas taste so good in salads. Addition of cheese and avocado has no only increased the taste but nutrition quotient as well
