Recipe: SQA Chick Pea and Friends Salad (Simple, Quick, Awesome)

To me, avocados and artichokes are the cream cheese and sour cream of the vegan world. They're just two ingredients that if included in a recipe make the recipe awesome no matter what else is in it. This is quickie that can be put together in a matter of minutes. It's a meal for me, but would make a great side when entertaining.

Chick Peas - one 540ml can
Whole Artichoke Hearts - one 398ml can
Pitted Ripe Black Olives - one 375ml can
Peas - one 398ml can
Avocado - one ripe, cubed
Ground Pepper - 1 TBSP
Ground Cumin - 1 TBSP
Garlic Powder - 1 TBSP

1. Drain all the fluid from the cans and rinse.
2. Put all ingredients in a salad bowl.
3. Mix.
4. Serve.

Yes, it's really simple but tell people you had to soak the chick peas overnight two nights ago and marinate the whole salad overnight last night - they'll think you're genius.
You get a kick-ass amount of protein, fibre, vitamin C and Iron as well as decent amounts of calcium and vitamin A.
