This is a good warm-weather salad for when you don’t feel like cooking. If your walnuts are already toasted,* all you have to do to get this salad ready is some quick chopping.
I initially decided to try this recipe because it looked healthy. Broccoli, chickpeas and that trendy, protein-rich seed quinoa. Yeah, OK, I’ll try it. Ho hum.
I first made this for a church extracurricular activity.* I didn’t add the avocado because the salad was going to sit in a cooler for a few hours. Happily, it was a hit even without it. I added avocado to the leftovers at home, and yum, it was even better.
