This Mexican garbanzo salad is a refreshing salad for any potluck or outdoor party. The combination of fresh tomatoes, minced onion, jalapeño, cilantro, jalapeño, avocado, chickpeas, and lime juice makes this a hearty dish that won't disappoint.
It is hot! Here in SC it is not only hot, but 100% humid. I'm finally back to posting recipes and this one is great for a hot summer day. Even though this Mexican garbanzo salad isn't exactly American, I think you should make it for your 4th of July party. It is refreshing, delicious and perfect with those ripe tomatoes you are growing in your garden. Ok, so maybe not all of us are growing tomatoes, but I'm sure you can get some good ones at your local farmers market.
Everything here at home is running as smooth as it can with a 4 yr. old and a 3 month old. We are cooling off at the pool and enjoying sleeping in longer than usual and going to bed later. Some days are better than others, but generally we are pretty content. Even though I complain about the heat, I am enjoying the slow pace of summer. Have a great weekend and enjoy this Mexican garbanzo salad.
