The combination of fiber-packed, antioxidant-rich vegetables and fruit plus high-protein chickpeas and avocado makes this a well-balanced and satisfying salad. Spice up the mash with additional ingredients like mango, celery, cilantro or carrots, then enjoy it as a dip, sandwich filling or, in this case, a salad topper.

Rinse and drain the chickpeas. In a medium bowl, combine the chickpeas and avocado, and roughly mash with a fork or potato masher. Add the onions and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine thoroughly. 

Serve 1/2 cup of the chickpea salad on a plate with the arugula, cucumbers, quinoa, strawberries, tomatoes, feta and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Enjoy! 

Reserve the remaining chickpea and avocado salad for another purpose.
