Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

So much has been going on that I have neglected to post regularly.  This is my fourth day on my chemo pill (Ibrance) and so far so good.  Luckily I have had no side effects except for anxiety which is completely understandable.  With the meds it is necessary to drink at least 64 ounces of water per day and that has been my biggest challenge.  At the end of the day I feel like I did when we were kids and would stay in the water all day….waterlogged.  I am sure this will pass as my body adapts. Well enough of that.

Tonight I finally decided that I was going to make time to take pictures and post my salad.  After searching Pinterest I combined a few recipes and threw together a fresh and simple salad.  I intended to add nuts but the only nuts I had were salted and that’s a no-no.  Enjoy


  • 1 cup chickpeas, rinsedIMG_5426
  • 1 vine ripe tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 cup Kalamata olives, chopped
  • 1/4 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix it all together and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Have a wonderful reast of the week and an even better weekend. God Bless.

  1. I hope you have no additional side effects from the chemo pill besides water-bloating! Glad you stopped by to say hello, that is a wonderful salad you prepared, and who needs nuts when you have chickpeas? I guess you could toast some for the nut effect if you want next time. 🙂
