Avocado, Chickpea and Walnut salad - Creations

I've made a lot of salads in my life but this one "takes the healthy vegetarian cake".
My preceptor gave me an avocado from her organic delivery and it was delicious. I have trouble picking the best avocados. They always seem too hard when I cut into them so I don't buy them as often as I should. They are a great healthy fat and for a fruit, I highly recommend having a serving of avocado a few days a week.
Also, I decided to "toast" up some chickpeas as I was chopping my ingredients. I added some hickory hot sauce (35mg sodium per 1tsp) to the chickpeas while they were cooking and they were super delicious.
I can't wait to make this salad again!
